Since 2012, La Petite Escalère is developing a research and creation residency program and welcomes multidisciplinary artists several times a year, offering them a privileged setting to work on ongoing or new project. Through the implementation of this program, La Petite Escalère is looking to reach three goals: highlight its natural and cultural heritage, promote and support contemporary national and international artistic creation, and stimulate the regional artistic scene.

This program is made possible by the association Les Amis de La Petite Escalère with the support of the French government (Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication – DRAC Nouvelle Aquitaine) and the Région Nouvelle Aquitaine. Since 2014, La Petite Escalère is a member of the French federation of artist residencies, Arts en résidence – Réseau National Learn more
