la Cité Internationale des Arts
The support provided by the Cité internationale des arts for cultural development is based on the idea of a project: each artist organizes his or her residence independently and can submit a project to the Cité internationale arts. Thus, through several programs, the resident-artists can present an exhibition, a concert, a meeting, a projection or a performance. A number of events at the Cité internationale des arts are also organized in partnership with other structures.
The Cité internationale des arts is also a relay of current events Off-The-Cité by the artists in residence, through a dedicated section.
