• Artists will receive a minimum monthly fee of about £2,100 / 2 500 €
• Each artist will benefit from curatorial mentoring
• Each residency will be tailor-made in discussion with the institutions’ curatorial teams

• Artists will be provided with accommodation and access to a workspace

The opportunity is open to visual artists who have been living and working in France or the UK for at least 3 years and have presented their work in one or more identified institutions of the contemporary art network.
