Our host partner for the residency is FIAP Jean Monnet, an international exchange centre located in the heart of the historic art district of Montparnasse.
Imagined in the 1950s, with the purpose to help Europe rebuild after the war and to fight against all forms of discrimination, the Centre opened in 1968. Named after one of the fathers of European Union, the mission of this multifunctional Centre today is to foster exchange among people from different countries, through initiatives that promote “global citizenship”.
Practical Info and Area Guide
"The residency provided a wonderful opportunity to visit Paris from the point of view of an artist as well as the chance to learn from the other participants who came from all over the world. This cultural exchange program fits perfectly
with the mandate of the international Centre where we stayed, it was a great experience for all."
- Sylvie Grenier, Canada (Artist-in-Residence, 2018)
