Cité Internationale des Arts

Residency Program for Algerian Artists

This program of creative and research residencies is open to Algerian visual artists, musicians and writers working and living in Algeria. It was created on the initiative of the French Ministry of Culture, following the delivery of the Stora report and as part of the implementation of recommendations intended to appease Franco-Algerian memories.


The aim of this residency is to promote and facilitate the mobilitý of Algerian artists, and to expand their professional and artistic network.

This program is co-constructed by the Cité internationale des arts (Paris), the Camargo Foundation (Cassis) and the Friche la Belle de Mai (Marseille). In collaboration with AM.I, Triangle - Astérides, contemporary art center of national interest, Fraeme and SACEM, the partners are committed to supporting the project of each winner by enabling them to benefit from privileged accompaniment́, networking and a funded three-month residency in France.

Following this call for applications and the meeting of a jury of professionals from the art and culture world, six artists (two visual artists, two musicians and two writers) will be selected for residencies of three months each, at the residency venues involved in the program. 

Once in residence, the artists are accompanied by the host organization, which is attentive to their needs to ensure the successful development of their projects. The program partners provide follow-up to maintain continuity throughout the residency. Once the residency is over, artists are required to submit a report.
