Lower Manhattan Cultural Council is proud to partner with the Mayor’s Office of the City of Paris (Mairie de Paris), to provide New York City artists with the opportunity to live and work at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, France for six consecutive months.

The Paris Residency is a self-guided and self-motivated experience. Beyond facilities-related assistance with the live/work space at Cité des Arts, the residency does not provide hands-on support. There are no organized open studios, group activities, or events. Artists selected for the Paris Residency should be prepared to seek out a community, facilities to produce work, and experiences they would not have without this opportunity.

Please return to our International Fellowships program page for further information about:
