As part of the action of the Ministry of Culture in favor of the rural world, the DRAC Normandie puts in place its regional call for projects «Rural territories, territories of culture: residencies of artists in rural territory», in partnership with the Department of Calvados and Manche and DRAAF Normandie.


This call for projects aims to support projects of artistic residencies aimed at the participation of inhabitants in a process of cultural action and creation. Projects must involve at least one professional cultural actor, one rural actor and one community. They cover all areas of the art of culture and are based on identifying elements of the territory.


Territoires ruraux, territoires de Culture

With this call for proposals, the DRAC confirms its commitment to four priority objectives:

  • Developing the presence of artists in rural areas
  • To enable the inhabitants to make use of their tangible and intangible heritage and to promote their cultural expression
  • Promote the sharing of a sensitive experience for the inhabitants, through artistic expression and cooperation around a creative process
  • To address the contemporary issues of the rural world through art and culture around the environment, the landscape, the habitat, bringing together the life sciences, societal or economic developments, sociabilities


DRAC Normandy renews its call for regional projects in 2023 "Rural territories, cultural territories: artists' residencies in rural territory"
