Description of Residency Program

Located in the heart of the old town Vallauris, on the French Riviera, A.I.R. Vallauris (Artists in Residence), a non-profit association, welcomes artists from around the world to its lodgings and studios to meet with local artists and to research and create new works in a unique setting.

In its 19th season, A.I.R. Vallauris has welcomed near to 300 international artists since its conception in 2001. The Association has three primary objectives:

  • The hosting of international artists and the support of contemporary creation.
  • Education in (primarily, but not exclusively) the field of ceramic arts.
  • The organisation and realisation of cultural events.

A.I.R. Vallauris accommodates several artists at a given time in its residence and studios. Using different mediums artists (ceramists, sculptors, painters, photographers, video and multimedia) work from an equipped studio, live in individual furnished spaces and are afforded access to a gallery where their works are displayed and celebrated at the end of their residency period. Media involvement encourages the interest of an invited and engaged audience. The quality of artistic creation is one of the major concerns addressed by the program. A selection committee evaluates applicants based on their artistic experience, merit and project proposal.

The Standard Residency programme is for one month and there are six periods in the year to choose from. The Atelier Tremplin programme for recent  graduates is for three months and there are three periods to choose from during the 2020 season.
