For the past twenty years, the city of Marseille has developed a cultural policy aimed at supporting emerging artists. 11 artists aged under 35 are selected for their potential by a jury of professionals and awarded studio spaces at a moderate rent for a duration of 23 months. The studios are located on two sites: Boisson (4th Arrondissement) and Lorette (2nd Arrondissement). Triangle France - member of the national network Arts en residence - provides on-going support to the municipal studios’ resident artists, to help them develop their critical, technical and professional skills.+ MORE
