The Jerome@Camargo program is an invitational grant program providing artists from multiple disciplines previously supported by the Jerome Foundation with creative residencies at the Camargo Foundation. The purpose of the program is to provide time and space for artists to think, create, and reflect; to learn from a community of artists and scholars-in-residence; and to connect with resources of the Aix-Marseille-Provence area.

The program celebrates the shared legacy of the Jerome and Camargo Foundations, both founded by Jerome Hill. An Academy Award-winning filmmaker, painter, photographer, composer, and supporter of the arts in the United States and Europe, Jerome Hill chose Cassis and what is now the Camargo Foundation as his home in France.

Applications are reviewed and recommended by a panel consisting of artists and arts leaders, including former Jerome@Camargo residents and Camargo Fellows. Camargo is delighted to announce that the 2020 Jerome@Camargo selected residents are:

Mike Alberti, Writer, Some People Let You Down
LeilAwa, Dancer, Body Watani
Ram Devineni, Filmmaker, project of interactive comic book on migration of women from Syria and other countries into Europe
