La Becque ambitions to host and to foster the creativity of artists of all backgrounds and disciplines. Residents will benefit from an exceptional location and infrastructure, as well as networks conducive to accomplishing the project they have been selected for.
Our Principal Residency Program participants will be selected globally by a transdisciplinary jury of experts. The program is oriented towards confirmed artists as well as up-and-coming practitioners with a high development potential.
The residency program will dedicate particular attention to projects exploring the interplay of nature and of technology &ndash two notions which are more than ever intertwined and at the core of contemporary preoccupations.
La Becque artist residency was developed under the auspices of the Fondation Françoise Siegfried-Meier.
A violinist of renown born in 1914, Françoise Siegfried-Meier showed an unswerving commitment to the artists of her time. Generous and passionate, she expressed a wish to durably support a number of public organizations and institutions, particularly in the field of the arts, by creating a foundation bearing her name.
Françoise Siegfried-Meier wish for her family’s domain in La Tour-de-Peilz to become a haven of creativity and exchange is now realized through La Becque, a residency infrastructure that is a natural fit for this unique and stunningly beautiful site.
