The Camargo Foundation
The Camargo Foundation, located in Cassis, France and founded in 1971 by artist and philanthropist Jerome Hill, is a residential center offering programming in the humanities and the arts. It offers time and space in a contemplative environment to think, create, and connect. The Foundation encourages the visionary work of scholars, artists, and thought leaders in the arts and humanities.
The Foundation’s primary program consists of individual fellowship residencies of one to three months. Over 700 Camargo Fellows have come together on the Foundation’s campus overlooking the Mediterranean Sea to reflect, create, and exchange. The Foundation welcomes fellowship applications from individuals in the following areas:
- Scholars working in French and Francophone cultures, including cross-cultural studies that engage the cultures and influences of the Mediterranean region.
- Visual artists, creative writers, film/video/new media directors, playwrights, composers, choreographers, and multidisciplinary artists.
The Camargo Foundation welcomes scholars and artists from all countries and nationalities as well as all career levels. Camargo is in the process of developing new partnerships with various American, French and international institutions. In 2014, the Foundation will be offering summer arts fellowships with the BAU Institute.
