Centre d’art de Châteauvert

In the heart of ‘Provence Verte’, in a haven of greenery on the banks of the Argens river, Châteauvert’s contemporary art centre was inaugurated in 2014 and has been offering residency programmes for artists since 2018. It is supported by the Communauté d'Agglomération Provence Verte.

At the centre, art and nature become one... visitors and residents are invited to stroll and daydream amongst the sculptures in its garden which is bordered by the river Argens. Sometimes it’s peaceful, sometimes it’s temperamental, yet it provides the perfect backdrop for the discovery and sharing of contemporary creation which is coming to life. Projects blossom during the residency programme, artists produce works on site, in harmony with their environment. The production of art also flourishes within the walls of the art centre, during temporary exhibitions for example which are brought to life on a daily basis through outreach activities including conferences and events. Supporting artists and sharing knowledge with visitors constitute the spirit of the art/nature structure which is nestled in the intimate Sourn valley.


The art centre organises between 2 and 3 research and/or creative residencies per year.

Artists are provided with accommodation and a 80 m² studio which is situated 300 metres from the art centre. Artists receive as much technical support as the team can provide. 
Each resident receives a stipend of €2,500 (all tax included).
