The Georgia Fee Artist/Writer Residency in Paris aims to support and invest in emerging artists and writers, to provide an opportunity for them to advance their work and explore and engage with the cultural landscape of Paris, to encourage experimentation, and to increase exposure of their work to an international audience.
The Residency is open to visual artists of all mediums, art critics and “experimental writers who elevate the discourse of art into an art itself.” You must also be aged 24 years or older. “The selection will be made based on the merit of past work and the potential for future success, the ability to independently develop new work, and the proposed project’s relevance to the city of Paris.”
Recipients will be required to maintain a blog, which will be posted on ArtSlant. Get a sense of the residency by dipping into the blog from current resident Sara Shaoul.
If you’re successful, you’ll be housed in a Haussmann-style apartment and, thanks to the scheme’s strategic partner, Residency Unlimited, will be asked to participate in studio visits with prominent Parisian arts professionals from Paris that have experience relevant to your current project. It’s a great opportunity to explore your creativity further and take it to the next level!
