Dora Maar House Open Call for 2025 Residencies
Residency

  • Submission Deadline: October 15, 2024
  • Entry Fee: $25 application fee
  • Award Info: In 1997, Nancy B. Negley purchased the former residence of Dora Maar. In a five-year effort, she rehabilitated and updated this spacious eighteenth-century, four-story stone residence in the village of Ménerbes. Her goal was to make it a retreat for scholars, artists, and writers, where they could work undisturbed on their research, art, or writing, for one to two months. Here outstanding mid-career professionals are offered fellowships that enable them to reside in the Dora Maar House and focus on the creative aspects of their work. A travel award is based on the average fare of travel from the resident's hometown to Paris. A $1500 stipend is awarded.
