There are two methods of selection for candidates wishing to obtain a residency at the Cité internationale des arts


By means of the Cité internationale des arts' selection committees

French and foreign artists may apply directly to the Cité internationale des arts, which organises different commissions by discipline (visual arts, music, writing, performing arts) and thematic. The Cité also develops residency programs in collaboration with identified and prescribing institutions, which support emerging talents of the international artistic scene by awarding grants.


Our programs :


CAPSULE • ONDES • TRAME • 2-12 • Cité internationale des arts - Art Explora • Cité internationale des arts & Centre nationale des arts plastiques • Fondation Daniel et Nina Carasso & Cité internationale des arts • Voix d'Afriques – A prize from JC Lattès Editions, RFI and the Cité internationale des arts
