Residency Programs

Standard Residency. Vallauris accommodates up to six artists in each phase for a one month period in its residence and studios. Using different mediums artists work from an equipped studio, live in individual furnished spaces and are afforded access to a gallery where their works are displayed at the end of their residency period.

The "Atelier Tremplin" program is specifically designed for recent graduates of Ceramic schools: undergrad or graduate cursus. The goal of the Atelier Tremplin is to provide a platform for new graduates that will assist them in making their initial steps into the professional field.
