The BAU Institute Residency is for international mid-career artists who have been working independently for over ten years. Private apartments and workspaces are offered at no cost and each Fellow receives an individual flat. The apartments are furnished and have fully equipped kitchens. Linens and towels are provided. A washer and dryer are available for personal laundry. On campus amenities include Wi-Fi, parking, reference library, outdoor Greek Theater, gardens and large terraces with sea views. Visual artists work in their apartments or in additional studio spaces.

The residency provides artists a singular opportunity to devote intense focus on projects within an inspiring campus perched above the Mediterranean Sea. Residents are free to create their own schedule of studio practice combined with group dinners and outings. Film screenings, readings and studio presentations also support a vibrant community among Fellows. The setting enables undisturbed creativity while still offering interaction with the local village of Cassis and the nearby city of Marseille.

ELIGIBILITY

The BAU Institute encourages national and international applicants of diverse backgrounds. The residency may accommodate up to 12 Fellows. Fellowship selections are determined by a rotating panel of discipline-specific professionals.

Applications will not be considered from full-time students.

Fellows are responsible for transportation to the Residency and all meal costs. 

BAU Institute will host a Welcome and a Farewell Dinner.

The Fellowship is for the accepted artist only. No guests or family members may visit the Camargo Foundation during the BAU Institute residency.

A refundable $250.00 USD security deposit is due upon acceptance.

The BAU Institute Residency Director will be on-site and available for assistance.
Additional support from the Camargo Foundation staff during business hours is also available. Fellows receive extensive information packets before arrival to facilitate their travel plans and prepare for life in Cassis.
