APM - Résidences d'artistes

The organisation Les Ateliers du Plessix-Madeuc has been running residency programmes and presenting works in North Brittany since 2010. Since 2020, it has been based in Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer.

The aim of the organisation is to support young artists by providing them with access to a studio, accommodation, a stipend and free art equipment so that they can pursue their research and production. At the end of the residency, artists have the opportunity to exhibit the work they created. A number of events are organised throughout the year, including conferences, open days, exhibitions and workshops.



- individual studios
- accommodation
- a stipend 
- fine arts equipment,
- an end-of-residency exhibition,
- interactions with the public during open days, targeted initiatives, exhibitions, conferences,
- support from members of the team and the organisation.


The residency sessions last for three months and host young artists, painters and illustrators, from January to March, April to June and October to December.


The call for applications for two residency sessions (in the winter and autumn) is issued twice a year.
Artists are selected by a jury made up of members of the organisation.
Spring and summer residency programmes are by invitation only.


We strive, where possible, to host residents’ families. This very much depends on the accommodation we have available.
The financial costs associated with hosting families are the responsibility of the resident.
Residences are open to pregnant people. To make their stay with us as comfortable as possible, we can put them in touch with key onsite contacts.


- to complete the entire residency programme,
- to take part in public events,
- to present their work at the end of residency exhibition 
- to leave behind a work produced during their residency for a period of 5 years. The work may be exhibited by the organisation at local exhibitions in order promote artistic practices and make them more accessible to the public.
