Camargo Core Program 2021-2022

Applications call for Camargo Core Program 2021-2022. The Camargo Foundation prizes diversity and welcomes applicants from all countries and nationalities, representing a broad range of creative thought and practice. Three main categories are available, and several subcategories for artists’ applications.

  • Scholars: Scholars should be connected to the Arts and Humanities working on French and Francophone cultures, or cross-cultural studies that engage the cultures and influences of the Mediterranean region. To be eligible for a fellowship in the “Scholars” category, applicants are expected either to hold a Ph.D. and a record of post-doctoral scholarship, or, to be Ph.D. candidates completing the final stages of research for, or writing of, their dissertation.
  • Thinkers: Thinkers include accomplished professionals and practitioners in cultural and creative fields (such as curators, journalists, critics, urban planners, independent scholars, etc.) who are professionally engaged in critical thought. We are interested in work attuned to the theoretical arena, the arts, and society.
  • Artists (all disciplines): Artists in all disciplines should be the primary creators of a new work/project and should have a track record of publications, performances, exhibitions, credits, awards, and/or grants. We are interested in artists who have a fully developed, mature artistic voice. Applicants may include artists who are engaged in critical thought and research-oriented projects. When applying, artists will have to choose among the following subcategories: Visual Artists / Choreographers, Theater Directors, and Performance Artists / Writers and Playwrights / Film, Video, and Digital Artists / Composers and Sound Artists / Multidisciplinary Artists.

Stipend 

The foundation will provide 18 fellowships per year (9 artists and 9 scholars & thinkers). A stipend of USD 250 per week is provided, as is funding for basic transportation to and from Cassis for the Fellow for the residency. In the case of air travel, the basic coach class booked in advance is covered.

Additional Funding

Fellows may not accept gainful employment that will prevent them from focusing on their project during their residencies at Camargo. Research leave or other forms of sabbatical are allowed, as are fees for occasional lectures or participation in seminars. Additional grants with requirements that do not contradict the conditions of the Camargo fellowship are encouraged.
