Post-lockdown residencies

The arts and cultural sector have been particularly affected by the consequences of the Covid-19 health crisis and many artists and cultural professionals have lost income as a result of their events and projects either being cancelled or postponed. In response to this context and in order to provide support to artists and cultural professionals from the French arts and culture scene, the Cité Ιnternationale des arts has joined forces with the Carasso Foundation to create a new residency programme.
