The "Residency Factory" call for proposals launched by the Institut français has been extended through 8th July 2019.
To meet the demand from the French Cultural Network abroad for the development of residency programmes on their premises or with a local partner, the Institut français offers the "Residency Factory". This programme is aimed at Instituts françaises, Alliances Françaises and the Cultural Services of the French Embassies. Its objective is to support the Network beginning from the design stage of residency programmes, as well as at a technical and financial level during the implementation and organisation of the residencies.
The programme aims to encourage the development of residencies across the Network so that they can act as a real aid for cultural cooperation. Within the framework of this Residency Factory scheme, the Residencies Department can work with the network in several different ways – offering consultation and/or financial support – and at different stages of the residency project's development.
