Program Description

Studio Faire is a contemporary art space in South West France, providing residencies for visual artists, makers, photographers, designers, musicians, writers, creative researchers and all other types of creative practitioner. Residents live and work in the house, studios and gardens of Studio Faire, a ‘Maison de maître’ built around 1830 and still retaining its period characteristics. It is the private home of Scottish couple Julia Douglas (Mixed Media Artist/Designer) and Colin Usher (Photographer/Designer/Drummer). There will be up to two other residents at Studio Faire during this period. The house is situated in the centre of the market town (and historic city) of Nérac, in the stunning Lot-et-Garonne region of South West France. Residencies offer time to focus on research and development to inspire a new body of work or develop an existing project. They can nurture the growth of seedling ideas by giving the space to unselfconsciously experiment and play without expectation.
