Mediterranean Residencies - morocco

La Friche and the French Institute of Morocco have joined forces to put a new Residency Exchange programme in place between 2015 – 2018.

This residency exchange initiative aims to welcome upcoming Moroccan artists to Marseille and send their counterparts to Morocco. La Friche la Belle de Mai and French Institute of Morocco hope to encourage career development for upcoming artists from the Mediterranean by offering them a tailor-made production and research framework that will allow them to develop their artistic practices and (re)discover the French art scene. A producer is paired up with each artist in residence to ensure the progress of the residency.

Public workshops will be set up, as well as meetings with professionals (curators, art critics, journalists…) throughout the residencies in order to support networking and create new links and also to raise awareness of the work in progress.
