Artist Residency Grant Program

Le CouveNt is a creative space dedicated to music, visual arts, writing, multimedia and performing arts.
Its mission is to promote contemporary artistic practices and the exchange between artists and co-creation projects that connect different creative processes.

Our approach includes:
-Art Residencies & workshops
-Musical Performance Coaching sessions
-Concerts, Exhibits & Performances.
-Sound recording sessions

While in residence, the artists will benefit from an intense production time enhanced by the exchange of ideas and experiences with peers.

Le CouveNt works with a large network of local professional artists (arts advisory committee) and technicians (sound, lighting) and it is recognized as the regional culture & arts reference.
Our premises include an old convent (17th century) that has been restored over the last three years with the aim to preserve its history and style. There are several working spaces (individual or shared), several exhibition & concert rooms, individual and double bedrooms, a large common kitchen/dining room, sitting and relaxing area. Le CouveNt is also equipped with Wi-Fi & Ethernet internet access. Computers (Mac OS X / Windows / Linux) are also available on demand.
A car is available for the individual use of artists in residence without additional cost (except for fuel). In order to benefit from this service you will need to bring with you a valid driver license.

The former convent is situated in Auzits, a village in the Aveyron, France south west region. Located on top of the village, it has breathtaking views of the Cantal and Aubrac hills. The nearest airport, Rodez, is only 20 minutes from “le CouveNt”, with 3 to 5 regular flights of about one hour from/to Paris. The nearest train station is located a few kilometers away.

This project is supported by the European Union through the LEADER funds.
