2024 Institute Francais-Pair International Artist Residency Program for Foreign Artists

Written by admin

PAIR, launched by the Institut français, is a commitment to supporting the international development of residency structures in mainland France and the French overseas territories by facilitating the hosting of foreign artists.

To apply, the residency host structure, collaborating with the artist, must submit a project proposal. Together, they will outline a research and creation project that necessitates the artist’s presence in France for a period ranging from one to three months, between October 2024 and December 2025.

The selected host structures will receive funding determined by the duration of the residency and the international transportation requirements.

Residency projects are scheduled to occur between October 2024 and December 2025.


The 2024 call for projects targets residency structures situated in mainland and overseas France (including Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique, Réunion, Mayotte, New Caledonia, French Polynesia, Saint-Barthélemy, Saint-Martin, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, the French Southern and Antarctic Lands, and the Wallis and Futuna Islands) seeking to host artists and creators from the African continent. The goal is to foster stronger connections between French and African artistic communities across various disciplines such as visual arts, performing arts, literature, cinema, and more.
