We regret to announce that due to urgent renovations being planned by the direction of the Cité des Arts,  which we are informed are scheduled to commence in 2019, we will not be able to offer our Terrance and Lynette Fern Cité Internationale des Arts studio residencies at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris in 2019.  We regret the inconvenience caused, but given the importance of ensuring our studio remains appropriately furnished and equipped, as well as safe and secure, we are complying with the Cité’s  request  to meet the renovation deadlines and dates set by their administration. Applicants who wish to apply for residencies in 2020 will enjoy the benefits of staying in a newly refurbished and renovated studio apartment.  We thank you for your patience, support and understanding.
