L’Artocarpe has two types of residency :
Either you come as a self-financed artist, with your own budget or sponsor 
- (SF -  self-financed), 
- or as invited artist (IVTD - Invited artists) that we choose to invite through the budget secured by one of our partner
See enclosed our rates for 2012- 2014 for both case.
To be invited by us takes much longer as we first need to secure funding from our partners, which is on the yearly basis. Funds have now already be attributed for the our 2013 programme.
Self-financed bookings work on the first-booked-first-served basis, once accepted by our art committee, not on a queuing list.
Self-financed residency also means that you will be responsible for all your personal costs: travel, insurance, visa, meals, transportation, material, equipment.
Please note that in both cases, there is an additional fee of registration to our membership in order to ensure that you are covered by our insurance while on site.
Once a member of L'Artocarpe, you will be in part of our rich network of contacts, throughout the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and the rest of the world.

Portfolio submission : there is no standard form !
Please note that your application will be assessed by our art committee.
Just send by email, elements of your practice that clearly define what you do, what you have done so far with a CV and a description of what you would like to do while in residence.  You just need to give us a rough idea of your need for work detailing what you do (painting, photography ...)  in order for us to assess the possibility to accommodate your need for the studio. 
As we recognise the importance of experimentation, we do not require that you finalise your project prior to start the residency, as it is often expected today in other institutions! We shall just ask you to run open day studio to engage with the public, and present the extend of your research, practice in a conference to present yourself to local artists. You are however welcome to plan an exhibition, workshop, a sale and any other event that you would like to run and L'Artocarpe will put you in touch with our partners (gallery, library...)
Do not forget to clearly state the period you wish to come as well as the list of material (equipment, tools, type of space etc) that you require. You are encouraged to give us flexible dates, so as to have greater chances to secure a residency.
Other that the quality of your work, the latter elements will determine whether or not we are in the position to answer your needs.
We look forward to receiving your application,
Yours Artocarply!
L'Artocarpe's team!

This is a discussion between two artists on the purpose of doing a residency. Linda Lenssen (The Netherlands) and Joëlle Ferly (Guadeloupe) are presenting their view on the benefits of doing art residencies.

Following her two months residency at L'Artocarpe, Dutch artist Linda Lenssen is now opening up her studio to the public. Her last party is held at famous art figure Joël Nankin's studio! A nice way to say goodbye to Guadeloupe... Many Thanks Linda for all your time and exchange. All the best for the rest!

Photographs and video pieces were visible in the studio of the artist who was eager to present her work to visitors.
Her last meeting with the art scene was further emphasized by going to the opening of Joel Nankin's art studio, which was presenting two young figures: Anais Verspan and Ronald Cyrille.

Drums and singing were (of course!) at the render-vous: just a nice way to end up a two-month residency in traditional Guadeloupean style.

A last visit to Jorge Rovelas jewelry presentation before boarding her plane is to sum up Linda Lenssen's time on our shore...

Many thanks to you Linda for having shared our art and culture.

L'Artocarpe is pleased to announce that the next resident is visual artist Linda Lenssen, coming from The Netherlands.
Linda shall be with us from 8th April until 25 May 2014.

Linda Lenssen is the laureate of our call to artist held at the end of last year. L'Artocarpe is taking the opportunity to thank all participants who have sent over their portfolio. Taking the time in applying to our space for a residence, is a sign of the interest to come to Guadeloupe and share with artists from the island on various things: ideas, art techniques among others.
