Launched in 1971, the Camargo Core Program is the historical and flagship program of the Foundation. Each year an international call is launched through which 18 fellows (9 artists and 9 scholars/thinkers) are selected:

  • Scholars : applicants should be connected to the arts and humanities working on French, Francophone, or Mediterranean cultures.
  • Thinkers : this category includes accomplished professionals and practitioners in cultural and creative fields (i.e. as curators, journalists, critics, urban planners, independent scholars, etc).
  • Artists (all disciplines): applicants should be the primary creators of a new work/project.

The call for applications for the Camargo Core Program for residencies in fall 2020 and spring 2021 will be open from June 26 to October 1, 2019.
