Main residency

Providenza is a multidisciplinary artist residency located in the midst of nature in the Corsican mountains which goal is to foster creation by promoting the breaking down of boundaries between disciplines and cultures. Designed as a life-size experimentation field, Providenza offers an exceptional working environment where the connection with nature is a source of creativity, focus, care, and rest.

Its flagship program consists in an annual five week long residency open to all disciplines, all nationalities, established as well as emergent artists.

A special attention is given to cinema, music and research projects that maintain a critical and sensitive relationship with the interweaving of contemporary political and environmental issues, especially in the complex relationships that develop between the living world, human societies, and technology.

Projects

Candidates apply for projects that may belong to different disciplines but share a common approach of original formal research.

Priority is given to projects that would particularly benefit from a working time on the field. Residents are selected internationally by a jury of transdisciplinary experts. The program is open to both established international artists and emerging talents. A few spots are reserved for young local artists who wish to learn from more experienced artists.

As examples, here is a narrowed selection of projects completed during past residencies:
