The Camargo Foundation residency

web site

The Camargo Foundation, located in Cassis, France, and founded in 1967 by artist and philanthropist Jerome Hill, is a residential center offering programming in the Arts and Humanities.

Located in Cassis, a small town in the South of France, facing the Mediterranean Sea, the Foundation offers a quiet campus surrounded by the natural landscape of Cap Canaille and the Calanques National Park. At the same time, Camargo is only a forty-five minute drive from Marseille, and a short drive from Aix-en-Provence and Arles, which are major centers for art, culture, and research.
