• Residencies

The Heritage Sites for Culture (CCRs) host residencies for artists, researchers and culture professionals, as part of a residency policy which aims to encourage creation and transdisciplinary dialogue. With a wealth of knowledge and experience, the CCRs support creativity and organise the dissemination of artistic projects to audiences, working continually to encourage dialogue between creativity and the general public. They contribute to the promotion of young artists, putting in place structures to identify young talent on a local and European scale, (e.g. through calls for projects and attending festivals), and maintain close links with universities. The discovery of young talent depends on the strength of these networks and interactions within the European cultural sector.

The ACCR coordinates, with the support of the Ministry of Culture, two residency programmes. One of these, Odyssée, is aimed at foreign artists, and the other, NORA, at artists who are refugees living in France. The artists selected to take part in these residency programmes are hosted by the Heritage Sites for Culture, encouraging intercultural exchange and interdisciplinary creation.
