Partner residencies

Providenza is a multidisciplinary residency centre located in the heart of the Haute-Corse mountains.

In addition to its main programme, which since 2018 has consisted of an annual 5-week transdisciplinary residency, Providenza hosts a number of satellite residencies in partnership with various European structures.

[Institute for Ideas and Imagination of the Columbia University]

The II&I, based in Paris, is a unique program that fosters intellectual and artistic diversity unconstrained by medium and discipline through the interaction of the arts and academia. Each year the Institute brings together a cohort of 14 post-docs, artists and writers from around the world, to spend a year together in work and conversation. As we feel close to this approach, we offered the opportunity to invite one of the fellows to join our 2024 program and give birth to creative exchanges with our other residents from June 3rd to 24th 2024.

We selected Interdisciplinary British writer, poet and artist Jay Bernard, whose work is rooted in social histories.

[La Semaine de la Critique, Next Step Volume II : Filmmaker-Composer Workshop]

Every year, La Semaine de la Critique, one of the main selections of the Cannes Film Festival, supports young filmmakers selected for the festival in the development of their next feature film project through its Next Step programme.

Since September 2023, Providenza and la Semaine de la Critique, in partnership with Sacem, have been organising an on-site workshop, bringing together selected filmmakers with composers and scriptwriters. This ambitious programme supports the development of independent film projects, with a particular focus on sound writing and musical composition upstream of production, still in the writing phase.

[FiDLab: Providenza Prize]

FiDLab is an international film co-production platform that supports ten international film projects each year in their development phase. By accelerating co-productions, partnerships and exhibition opportunities, it is not uncommon for selected independent films, once completed, to go on to be selected at the most prestigious film festivals, such as Locarno or Berlin. In 2022, Fidlab created the Providenza prize, offering a filmmaker the opportunity to work on his or her project during a three-week residency. The winner is chosen by a dedicated jury during the Fidlab edition from all the projects selected by the Fidlab.

Winner 2022: Mira Adoumier - The night came about Winner 2023: Gregor Božič - Tales of Fruits and Monsters

[Communities Between Islands: Trans-Mediterranean Residencies]

In partnership with Cherimus, a Sardinian art and residency organisation and the Museo Nivola, with Archipelago Network and the Syros International Film Festival on the island of Syros, Greece, Providenza, with FRAC Corsica, is offering a programme of trans-Mediterranean residencies.

Since September 2023, groups of Mediterranean and international artists have been invited to take part in a 5-week residency programme enabling them to travel from one island to another, meeting the communities around Syros and the Cyclades islands, the Nebbiu region in Upper Corsica and the Sulcis Iglesiente region in south-west Sardinia.

The project is supported by Europe Creative and the European Commission.

[Taurus Foundation: Nebbiu, a chosen territory]

Since 2013, the Taurus Foundation has been supporting the arts and sciences in Switzerland and internationally by awarding prizes in both fields. These prizes highlight the work of artists and researchers whose work stands out for its quality and originality. In the visual arts, the prize is awarded to a contemporary photographer or video artist. In the scientific field, the Foundation supports projects and publications by researchers in palaeoanthropology and prehistory.

The Taurus Prize for the Visual Arts is awarded every two years to a contemporary artist by a committee of professionals from a chosen region.
