NORA ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM FOR REFUGEES

With the support of the French Ministry of culture, the ACCR has been coordinating the NORA artist-in-residence program for refugees exiled in France. The program is aiming at artists, researchers and culture professionals from countries in war, who have recently received a refugee status in France. The goal is to develop projects within French Heritage Sites for Culture (Centres culturels de rencontre), with the support of their team, and consequently getting a practical knowledge of French cultural, artistic and intellectual networks and building long-term connections and partnerships.

Initiated in 2016, NORA program has permitted to host in French Cultural centers for several months 35 artists from Middle-East. Taking part in the NORA program helped them to connect with various professional structures working with poetry and visual arts and gave them time to concentrate on their artistic projects. Some of them managed to publish their first book, others were able to continue to create, make exhibitions, films etc.

The call is aimed at artists, researchers and culture professionals from Near and Middle East and from Africa, who have recently received a refugee status in France; following countries will be examined in priority: Syria, Iraq, Libya, South Soudan, Eritrea and Yemen.
