Camac Art Centre and Fondation Ténot Seek Visual Artist, Writers and Musicians
Since 1999, the Camac Art Centre and Fondation Ténot aim to promote creativity and international exchange in the artist community. Camac and Fondation Ténot offer each year three residency bursaries to one visual artist, one writer and one musician or composer in order to create new career prospects for artists. Camac is located 60 minutes away from Paris in the village of Marnay sur Seine, within the scenic region of Champagne-Ardenne. This multi-disciplinary creative centre offers a unique environment for visual artists, writers or musicians. Camac aims at fostering communication and creativity among individuals and groups working on the evolution of ideas or realization of works.
The two-month residency will take place in 2015 (dates to be arranged by mutual agreement between the artist and the institution). The bursary does not provide travel expenses.
