Funded Residencies

Studio Faire opened in March 2018 and currently receives no external funding.

One of our aims is to develop funding opportunities from foundations, trusts and individuals and continue to cultivate partnerships with other funding bodies, organisations and societies who can offer fees and cover other costs to selected visitors. These will be awarded by direct invitation or following an application process. To be kept informed about future opportunities please join our mailing list or follow us on the social media. Links can be found at the bottom of this page.

There are currently no funded residencies to apply for, however, we are happy to help you raise funds through Financement participatif (more information below).

Financement participatif

Si vous avez un projet précis en tête et que vous pensez pouvoir convaincre vos amis et votre famille que ce projet profitera à votre pratique, vous pourrez peut-être amasser des fonds pour votre résidence grâce à une campagne de financement participatif.

Ayant mené une campagne réussie pour Studio Faire en 2016, nous serions heureux de vous aider et de vous conseiller dans ce processus si vous le souhaitez.

Nous vous suggérons de planifier au moins six mois avant la date de début de votre résidence.

Il existe de nombreux sites Web de financement participatif parmi lesquels choisir. Ceux-ci sont classés parmi les trois premiers:
