Description of Organisation:

NG Art Creative Residency is an international, multi-disciplinary creative residency located in Eygalieres, Provence, South of France. We welcome creatives to our 15th century homestead, ‘Mas des Pelerins’ (House of Pilgrims), situated within four hectares of olive groves and gardens to become their home away from home.

NG Art Creative Residency offers a place of respite, nourishment and enlightenment for artists, writers, poets, musicians, performers, filmmakers, photographers, academic scholars, and other creatives who seek to enrich their process.

We invite creatives to embark on imaginative endeavours, be immersed in an environment of reflection and creative freedom – in the studio and en plein air.

As well as providing a platform for creative output and collaboration, we offer mentorship, international exhibition opportunities, networks to global art organisations, philanthropists, galleries and guidance into the art world.
