An international experience offers the opportunity to see your work within the context of a new culture. Writers, visual artists, and composers who have been in residence at VCCA may apply for our international exchange program. VCCA offers residencies at several locations in addition to our Moulin à Nef location in Southwest France.

Any Fellow who has participated in a VCCA international residency program within the last three years is NOT eligible to apply in the current year, with the exception of those who have participated in the Moulin à Nef program in France.

You may apply for as many programs as you wish. Each requires a separate application and fee. If you are selected for multiple programs, you must choose one program to attend.

Applications are accepted beginning June 1 each year. Deadline for applying is September 15. Notification by December 15.

For information on the cost of an international exchange residency, see Financial Information.
