• Artists (all disciplines): applicants should be the primary creators of a new work/project.

Past Residents & Quotes

Past residents:
I calculate I've seen the Cape Canaille in 35 or 40 different kinds of light (I have the pictures to prove it), and seeing it from the windows in my studio never got old. It's great to have a wonderful, sunny studio and a lot of working time; greater still to be with so many gifted and amazing people and to get to know their work. I loved the open air markets, the daily walk to the Calanques, the bus ride into Marseille, the teeming masses of people in town on weekends, evening gatherings on the Chinese terrace, and I especially loved the Pizza Pengui at the restaurant we got to know as Disco Pizza. It turns out I also wrote a heck of a lot of music, at least some of it pretty good.
