Founded by American artist and philanthropist Jerome Hill (1905-1972), the Camargo Foundation fosters creativity, research, and experimentation through its international residency program for artists, scholars, and thinkers. Since 1971 Camargo has hosted nearly 1,000 individuals working in the arts and humanities from all over the world. Located in Cassis, France, on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea, the Foundation offers time and space in a contemplative and supportive environment, giving residents the freedom to think, create, and connect.

The residencies are programmed either by the Foundation, as in the case of the Camargo Core Program, or in partnership. The residency programs vary in purpose (production, research, or experimentation), duration (a few weeks to several months), and selection process (open call or by invitation). 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM  


With this 2023-2024 edition, the Camargo Foundation’s historic residency program, known in recent years as the «Core Program» returns to its original name, the Camargo Fellowship. 

The Camargo Fellowship is the flagship program of the Camargo Foundation. Since 1971, the Camargo Foundation has awarded residencies to nearly 1,500 individuals as part of its mission to support groundbreaking research, experimentation, and interdisciplinary approaches in the Arts and Humanities. Each year, an esteemed panel of scholars and arts professionals selects individuals or teams from hundreds of submissions from around the world. Winners are awarded residencies in a stunning, contemplative environment where they have the space, time, and freedom to think, create, and connect. 

From this 2023-2024 edition onward, 14 individuals will be selected for a residency as part of the program. Fellowships will span over 10 weeks. With each cohort of Fellows, the Foundation strives to foster connections between research and creation.
