Nora 2019 – Refugee Artist-in-Residence Program (France)

Applications Due: 4.4 2019. Program aimed at artists, researchers and culture professionals from countries in war, who have recently received a refugee status in France. The goal is to develop projects within French Heritage Sites for Culture (Centres culturels de rencontre), with the support of their team, and consequently getting a practical knowledge of French cultural, artistic and intellectual networks and building long-term connections and partnerships.

Open to artists, researchers and culture professionals from Near and Middle East and from Africa, who have recently received a refugee status in France. Applicants from Syria, Iraq, Libya, South Soudan, Eritrea and Yemen will be examined in priority.

Program allows residents, whose projects have been selected by a Heritage Site for Culture member, to receive 1000€ per month and the refunding of their travel fees (up to a determined level according to the distance to the residency center).

Residents are staying free of charge, within the Centre that has accepted them. Whenever possible, the Centre puts at their disposal material necessary for their residency project. The period of residency can vary from 1 to 6 months.
