Season 2: Call for applications

Results for the call for application that closed in January 2022 will be posted on our website June 27th, 2022 at 6PM (french time). This application process aims to select innovative residency projects that will take place in the United States during 2023, for a period of between one and three months. The call is addressed to creators, researchers, or cultural professionals who will conduct an original research project in the fields of arts and ideas that requires staying in the United States for a period of time. The call is open to any candidate whose project proposes a French partner, and who can demonstrate proficiency in conversational English. The candidate may propose either a residency anchored in one city, or a travelling residency in several stages throughout the United States.*
