Presentation of the device

What is the Residencies of Artists in Schools in Normandy?

Within the framework of the national plan for arts and cultural education and policies of democratization of access to culture, development and training of the public, the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs of Normandy, the Rectorate of the Academy of Normandy, the Directorates of the Departmental Services of National Education, and the Regional Directorate of Food, Agriculture and Forest of Normandy, in partnership with the Departments launch a call for projects for the establishment of artist-residency twinning in schools, schools, higher education or training bodies, acting on school time.

It offers to all schools of the academy of Normandy as well as to institutions of higher education and other institutions (CFA, ...), the possibility of welcoming artists, cultural professionals in residence over a school year and initiating artistic actions radiating on the school year and on a wider educational community.

New for 2023-2024

It is proposed, on an experimental basis, to associate more closely the arts and cultural education project with the artists' creation project, by offering the possibility for artists to receive in addition a grant for time dedicated to their creation, thus increasing the time of presence in the establishment by a minimum of one week.

The solicitation of this grant will be conditional on:

  • The development of an artistic memorandum of intent for this creation.
  • The explanation of the link between the creative project and the arts and cultural education project.
  • An explanation of how these creative times are to be shared with students and the educational community.
  • The designation by the establishment of a place made available for that time of creation.
  • The one-week mark-up of the artistic presence in the establishment.

The project must be the subject of a restitution by the public concerned and be valued, possibly on digital media (blog, site, mobile application, online edition, sheet on a dedicated portal).

Objectives of the approach

The call for projects Artist Residencies in Normandy aims to:
