Camargo Core Fellowship Program in France 2021/2022

The Camargo Foundation has created the Camargo Core Fellowship Program which welcomes applications from all countries and nationalities for the Arts and Humanities Residency and Fellowship Program.

Application Deadline: 1st October 2020

Eligible Countries: All


To Be Taken At (Country): Cassis, France

Field of Study: There are three key types are offered, and several subcategories for artists’ applications.

  • Scholars: applicants should be associated to the Arts and Humanities working on French and Francophone cultures, as well as but not limited to cross-cultural studies that engage the cultures and influence of the Mediterranean region. To be a qualified candidate for an academic fellowship in the “Scholars” category, candidates are expected either to hold a PhD and a record of post-doctoral academic scholarship, or to be PhD candidates concluding the final phases of academic research for, or writing of, their dissertation.
  • Thinkers: this category of application comprises of proficient professionals and practitioners in cultural and creative fields (such as curators, critics, journalists, urban planners, independent scholars, etc.) who are professionally engaged in critical thought. We are interested in work in agreement to the theoretical “arena”, the arts, and society. Like the academic scholars, they are expected to be working on French nations and Francophone cultures, including but not limited to cross-cultural studies that engage the cultures and impacts of the Mediterranean province.
  • Artists (of all disciplines): candidates should be the principal creators of a new work/project/assignment and have attained a track record of publications/exhibitions/performances, credits, awards and/or grants. We are interested in artists who have a fully advanced, mature artistic voice. Candidates may add those who have been commissioned for multiple works/projects. When applying, artists will have to pick among the following subcategories: Visual Artists / Choreographers and Performance Writers and Playwrights / Artists / Film, Video and Digital Artists / Composers and Sound Artists / Multidisciplinary Artists.

About the Award: The Camargo Core Program continues to be the historical and flagship program of the Foundation. Yearly, an international call is launched through which eighteen (18) fellows (9 artists and 9 scholars/thinkers) are picked.

The Camargo Core Program offers space and time in a contemplative setting to think, create, and connect. By encouraging revolutionary research and experimentation, it backs the visionary work of artists, scholars and thinkers in the Arts and Humanities. By encouraging multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches, it intends to foster connections between research and creation. The Fellowship is for:

  • Research, experiment & create: candidates can apply either with a specific project or a specific area of inquiry on which they would like to work at the time of the residency. An area of inquiry should be precise and represent exploration and investigation in the Fellow’s field of study. The Camargo Core Program welcomes both open-ended exploration, or more concentrated works and long-term research projects.
  • Exchange & network: at the time of the residency, discussions are done regularly to raise cross-disciplinary exchange between Fellows. In addition, the Camargo Foundation’s Staff make available formal and informal links with local professionals to bring about possible creative teamwork between the Fellow and the region.

Type: Fellowship

Eligibility for Camargo Core Fellowship Program

  • Work developed at the time of the residency can be in any language. In the interests of Camargo’s interdisciplinary, multicultural community, applicants must be able to converse well in English. A rudimentary knowledge of French is very useful, but not required.
  • The time in Cassis must be expended on the project or area of inquiry projected to and accepted by the selection committees, and authorized by the Camargo Board of Trustees.
  • Fellows must be physically present in the residence at the Camargo Foundation. This stipulation does not exclude absences during weekends. Frequent or prolonged absences are not tolerable.
  • Research should be at a stage that does not necessitate resources inaccessible in the Marseille-Cassis-Aix region or online.
  • Candidates planning on conducting research in local archives possibly will need to rent a car at the time of their Fellowship at their own cost.
  • An evaluation is conducted at the end of the residency period. The Foundation can ask Fellows two (2) to three (3) years subsequently after their fellowship for a fill in on the progress on the project or area of inquiry pursued while at Camargo Foundation.
  • A copy of any publication (digital or paper) subsequent from work done at the time of the residency should be forwarded to the Camargo Foundation.
  • Whichever publication, performance or exhibit, ensuing from the grant should give credit to the Camargo Foundation.

  • the link amid the proposal and the Camargo Foundation / Aix-Marseille-Provence area
