Partnership Programs

In addition to the Camargo Core Program, the Foundation organizes a number of programs in partnership with organisations in the US and France. 

Jerome at Camargo (US)

Jasmine Hearn (Jerome/Movement Research)

The Jerome Foundation seeks to contribute to a dynamic and evolving culture by supporting the creation, development, and production of new works by emerging artists in Minnesota and New York City. The Jerome at Camargo program is an invitational grant program providing Jerome grantees with fellowships to do research and work at the Camargo Foundation.  

The Jerome at Camargo program includes opportunities for choreographers (in partnership with Movement Research), environmental artists (in partnership with Saint John’s Pottery), and artists in all disciplines (in partnership with Art Matters).

3Arts (US)

3Arts works to sustain and promote artists in the six-county Chicago metropolitan area. The focus on women artists, artists of color, and artists with disabilities stems from the need for a diversity of voices and visions to be supported if our city is to prosper and inspire.  

Each year, 3Arts awardees and fellows are eligible to apply for all-expenses-paid, monthlong residencies at one of four partner sites through a program managed by the Alliance of Artists Communities. Residencies are fully-accessible and open to artists in dance, music, teaching arts, theater, and visual arts. 

FIDLab (France)

Residency program for participants of FIDLab, the coproduction platform of FIDMarseille, the international film festival of Marseille. In a diverse, international context, FIDLab aims to reinforce projects chosen not only for their artistic and creative qualities, which coincide with the FIDMarseille’s editorial ethos, but also for their international potential.  

The Camargo Foundation awards a residency opportunity to an artist or team of FIDLab with the purpose of providing time and space to develop a film project (writing, research, post-production...).

Goethe-Institut Marseille (France)

The Goethe-Institut is the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with a global reach. In partnership with the Goethe-Institut Marseille, the Camargo Foundation has launched a residency program for teams of artists (and researchers) from Europe and the Mediterranean, working on a collaborative project. Each year a call for applications is launched with a specific theme (i.e. contemporary political and social issues in Europe and the Mediterranean), and one team is selected. 

Next call: 2018. 

LabexMed (France)

"Karstic Crossings" Project

LabexMed (the Laboratory for Excellence in Mediterranean Studies) coordinated by the Maison Méditerranéenne des Sciences de l’Homme in Aix-en- Provence (France), has the ambition of moving further along the path towards pluridisciplinary and integrated research on the Mediterranean and encouraging the dialogue between human and social sciences and the earth, life and environmental sciences, throughout any time and geographical scales.  

Since 2014, the Camargo Foundation and the LabexMed program have been working together to stimulate relations and cultural exchanges between scholars and artists of the Mediterranean Basin in order to encourage and support the development of projects at the interface between human and social sciences and the arts with the aim of a common production.

Next call: 2018.

The Cultural Diaspora: African-American and African Playwrights Creative Residency at the Camargo Foundation

The Camargo Foundation, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Jerome Foundation, is excited to announce a four-week residency program for mid-career/established African-American and African playwrights. Four participants from the United States and four from the African continent, all of whom are interested in the intersection and interaction, whether historic or contemporary, between the United States and Africa, will be hosted at the Camargo Foundation in Cassis, France, from May 28 to June 25, 2018.

The Calanques: Land of Science and Source of Inspiration

In 2017, the Pythéas Research Institute, the Calanques National Park, and the Camargo Foundation invited artists to submit applications for an art & science residency, in order to think, create and work on the Human/Nature relationship. Eight international artists or collectives will be hosted at the Camargo Foundation for a one month residency in January-February 2018.

Accompanied by researchers, officers and users of the Calanques National Park, selected artists will be invited to re-invent links between the nature and the inhabitants of the Marseille metropolitan area.
