The Camargo Foundation prizes diversity and welcomes applicants from all countries and nationalities, representing a broad range of creative thought and practice. Three main categories are available, and several subcategories for artists’ applications.
Scholars should be connected to the Arts and Humanities working on French and Francophone cultures, or cross-cultural studies that engage the cultures and influences of the Mediterranean region. To be eligible for a fellowship in the “Scholars” category, applicants are expected either to hold a PhD and a record of post-doctoral scholarship. OR to be PhD candidates completing the final stages of research for, or writing of, their dissertation.
- Thinkers :
Thinkers include accomplished professionals and practitioners in cultural and creative fields (such as curators, journalists, critics, urban planners, independent scholars, etc.). These are practitioners who are professionally engaged in critical thought and particular interests are in work attuned to the theoretical arena, the arts, and society.
- Artists (all disciplines):
Artists in all disciplines should be the primary creators of a new work/project and should have a track record of publications, performances, exhibitions, credits, awards, and/or grants. Here particular interests are in artists who have a fully developed, mature artistic voice. Applicants may include artists who are engaged in critical thought and research-oriented projects. When applying, artists will have to choose among the following subcategories: Visual Artists/ Choreographers, Theater Directors, and Performance Artists/Writers and Playwrights/Film, Video and Digital Artists/ Composers and Sound Artists/Multidisciplinary Artists.
