Camargo Core Fellowship Program
Next year Camargo celebrates its 50th anniversary. During the past five decades, the Foundation has welcomed nearly 1,000 accomplished artists, scholars, and thinkers from all over the world, offering time, space, and a vibrant community to inspire collaboration and exchange.
Founded by American artist and philanthropist Jerome Hill, Camargo is located at his former estate in Cassis, France, on a 2-acre site overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Like other legendary artists who moved to Provence and the nearby French Riviera in the early 20th century, Hill was drawn to Southern France for the inspirational landscape and the light. From the 1930s until his death in 1972, Hill created a haven for avant-garde artists, writers, composers, filmmakers, historians, and more; early guests included Jonas Mekas, Olivier Messiaen, and the Living Theatre.
The Core Program, which was initiated in 1971, awards 18 international fellowships in the Arts and Humanities, supporting research and experimentation that challenge the borders of academic and artistic inquiry while promoting cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural exchange. With the flagship Core Program at its center, in recent years Camargo has embarked on various collaborations with local and international organizations to forge a wide variety of new programs that further enhance the Foundation’s mission.
The inevitable transformations of the past fifty years acquire a new and galvanizing meaning during the challenges of today. More than ever, uninterrupted time and a contemplative, safe environment for innovative research, collaborative investigation, and creative experimentation are essential. This program hopes to stimulate reflections on the past and the present of our societies that will contribute to the process of rethinking the world of tomorrow.
The Camargo Foundation prizes diversity and welcomes applicants from all countries and nationalities, representing a broad range of creative thought and practice. Three main categories are available, and several subcategories for artists’ applications.
