→ Information | Covid-19


The entire team of the Cité internationale des arts is actively mobilized in the implementation of all the necessary preventive measures against the Coronavirus COVID-19 and is at your disposal for any questions you may have.


This message aims to remind you of the right gestures and reflexes to adopt in this context and to inform you of the measures taken by the Cité internationale des arts from the beginning of the epidemic in two points: 1) Information and prevention measures; 2) Measures taken by the Cité internationale des arts.


Information and preventive measures

The Cité internationale des arts is informed daily of the evolution of the instructions set by the French government and updates the information posted.
Currently, the French government's recommendations are as follows:

• Wash your hands regularly or use a hydro-alcoholic solution.
• Avoid touching your face
• Coughing or sneezing into your elbow or handkerchief
• Blow your nose into a disposable handkerchief and dispose of it.
• Maintain a distance of at least one metre from other people.
• Salute without shaking hands and stop hugging.


The best protection for you and your loved ones is to always respect barrier measures and physical distance. In addition, wear a mask when the distance of one metre cannot be respected.


In case of signs of respiratory infection (fever or feeling of fever, cough, difficulty breathing) :


• I stay at home, avoid contact, call a doctor before going to his office or call the duty of care number in my region. I can also benefit from a teleconsultation;

• If the symptoms worsen with breathing difficulties and signs of choking, I call the SAMU (15) or send a message to the emergency number for the deaf and hard of hearing (114).


A toll-free number answers your questions about the COVID-19 Coronavirus seven days a week, 24 hours a day: 0 800 130 000.
The respect of the gestures to adopt, the call of the toll-free number 0 800 130 000 for any question about the virus, and the SAMU (15) in case of symptoms of COVID-19, are the reflexes to follow in the current context.

Measures taken by the Cité internationale des arts  

The Cité internationale des arts welcomes artists in residence from all disciplines and from all over the world. Contacts have been made with all of our partners and we have suspended the residency programs until the summer. We are working on postponing them and/or rethinking their format so that we can continue to welcome artists and support creation. 


The Cité internationale des arts has also cancelled all its programming and activities open to the public until further notice. 

For the artists currently in residence and the teams, instructions have been given (available at the reception desk and posted in different areas of the two sites : Marais and Montmartre) and protocols have been put in place to ensure everyone's safety. 

Looking forward to seeing you again, follow us on our social networks and our website!
