With the support of the French Ministry of Culture, the Association of French Cultural Centres (ACCR) coordinates the Odyssée artist-in-residence programme. This programme is designed for artists, researchers and professionals from countries other than France who wish to work on projects at French Cultural Centres in line with the specialisations of these centres. Since 2003, more than 800 artists and culture professionals from 79 different countries have taken part in the programme, in areas as wide-ranging as music, architecture, arts and crafts, the visual arts, dramatic writing, animated filmmaking, photography, journalism, and more.


The call for entries for 2023 is now open ; it is for artists, researchers and culture professionals from any country other than France.

We strongly encourage female artists, professionals and researchers to apply.
