Finis terrae offers artists and art critics a one-month residency at the Créac'h semaphore on the island of Ushant in order to pursue an idea, and artistic action or the production of an artwork/publication that tackles questions about the sea, coast, landscape, insularity… The artists are provided with furnished and equiped housing as well as a work room, located in the sepaphore, property and project of the Council Department of Finistère. 

The residencies are open to foreign artists and the association regularly collaborates with regional art centers and neighboring schools. The partnership punctuates the interactions and is essential for sharing the experiences and creations. Two bilingual catalogs, covering residencies from 2008 to 2012,  then from 2013 to 2018, are produced in 2013 and 2019.
