→ 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 and in areas where it is recommended and/or mandatory.


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.

A complete website also allows you to get information: 

Measures taken by the Cité internationale des arts  

The Cité internationale des arts continues its commitment to creation, even in the current context: we support artists in residency from all disciplines and from all over the world on a daily basis. Together with all our partners, we continue to rethink the format of existing residency programs and are working to set up new programs.


For the artists currently in residency and the teams, instructions have been given (available at the reception desk and posted in various places on both sites: Marais and Montmartre) and protocols have been put in place to ensure everyone's safety.


Discover on our website and social networks new sessions of Work In Progress (Everyday) highlighting the ongoing creation on our two sites! Take care!
