La Becque artist residency ambitions to host and to foster the creativity of artists of all backgrounds and disciplines. Residents will benefit from an exceptional site and infrastructure, conducive to accomplishing the project they have been selected for.
La Becque’s principal residency program participants will be selected globally by a transdisciplinary jury of experts. The program is oriented towards confirmed artists as well as up-and-coming practitioners with a high development potential.
In addition to its principal program, La Becque will also partner up with collectivities both international and Swiss and collaborate with them to develop specific, tailor-made residency programs. Among others, La Becque will devise residency programs with the art schools (visual arts, design, performing arts) of the Swiss HES-SO network to foster the development of post-graduation excellence.
All programs will dedicate particular attention to projects exploring the notions of nature and of technology – two notions which are more than ever intertwined...and at the core of contemporary preoccupations.
