Artist residencies in South of France
Documentary-art Net is a non profit association, situated in in the departement of Aude, near Carcassonne, one hour from Toulouse and one hour from Montpellier and offers 2 local artist studios as residencies. The idea is to introduce artists from different backgrounds and countries to art lovers in the area and to enrich the artistic environment.The area is known for its vineyards. The landscape is very attractive, nearby the sea (mediterranean) and mountains and much of it is wild. There are some important art centers in unusual and very beautiful spaces, like a château or caves where vine was made in the past.
artist residency - Peyriac de Mer
Artist Studio - Residency in Puicheric
The residency in Puicheric is ideal for 1 artist or a couple who want/s to spend one to 3 month of time to focus and investigate their practice in a quiet Mediterranean surrounding. The residency offers different spaces suitable for painting, drawing, writing, new media art, multimedia, installation and sculpture projects. Doc Art Net regularly makes short documentaries about contemporary art events in the area and elsewhere which are sent to a significant mailing list. At the end of the residency we make a documentary about the artists and their project/s. This short film will then be sent out to invite everyone for an open studio event.
