Pollen’s call for applications for the residency from mid-September to mid-December 2023 is open!




Since 1991, Pollen welcomes plastic surgeons of all nationalities in Lot-et-Garonne to enable them to carry out a specific project or to pursue a personal research. A platform for experimentation, Pollen defines itself as a place conducive to the accomplishment and deepening of a work.
Pollen offers a «test ground» and an accompaniment likely to nourish the work and the approach of the artists. It is a singular program, which does not pose the exhibition realized at the end of stay as a goal, but as a tool. It is an experience nourished by contacts with other artists, the public, schools, cultural operators...

The association provides artists with an individual workshop and equipped accommodation. The payment of a residence and work allowance of € 3,600 (three thousand six hundred euros) is phased in during the stay. The proposed program is associated with the continued presence of artists on the residency site for three months. It is not divisible or scalable because it is considered a fundamental element of the program.
