PLEASE NOTE, for the spring 2025 residency LNAF is not accepting applications from writers except for those applying through a special partnership with La Maison Baldwin.

In 2024-2025, to mark the centennial year of literary luminary James Baldwin, La Maison Baldwin has launched the “24 in 2024-2025” writer’s residency initiative. With residency partners in 6 regions that influenced James Baldwin’s life and work, 3-4 Black writers will be placed in each residency during this centennial year. LMB is committed to covering the travel expenses for those chosen residents, as well as providing a stipend.

LNAF is excited to partner with LMB to be a part of this important initiative. LNAF will select 4 Black writers to attend the spring 2025 International Artist Residency, joining 6 other artists and creatives from around the world at the Château de La Napoule from February 24 – March 24, 2025.

ARTIST EXPECTATIONS


La Napoule Art Foundation’s guiding principle is to encourage artists to engage in cultural interchange and the creation of art that impacts the world for the common good. LNAF welcomes those engaged in a wide spectrum of artistic practice and varied backgrounds.

To enrich the artist’s experience for the residency, it is expected that each artist will use every available opportunity, including mealtimes, to build community and friendship, and to exchange ideas and experiences.

  • Work and living space must be properly maintained and left in the same condition in which it was found.
  • It is expected that each participant will conduct themself with a high level of professionalism while in residence.
  • All equipment and materials are the responsibility of the artist.
  • The use of illegal drugs or the possession of such drugs on the premises is prohibited.
  • There is a fee for any overnight guests, based on availability. Prior approval is required.
