About this opportunity

As part of the Sound Art Residency, the museum will finance a work of sound art that may enter its permanent collection. Sound Art Residency is open exclusively to artists who come from one of the four continents represented in the collections of the musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac: Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. The work produced during the residency may be a transdisciplinary piece, and not strictly a work of sound art. However, the main component of the piece must be sound of any type (music, spoken or sung voices, ambient sound…).


  • The laureate will receive an endowment of 8,000 € net. This sum covers the artist’s as well as purchase by the museum for entry into the museum’s collection and delivery of the finished artwork (digital file or any other format).

On top of this sum, the museum will directly finance the following costs:

  • Housing and travel for work sessions in Paris at the museum and at Le Fresnoy in Tourcoing.
  • The production costs are limited to a maximum amount determined for each project by the museum and based on the technical specifications as presented in the application.
  • The cost of any technical materials or installation needed to present the piece (purchase/rentals/installation/maintenance)
  • The potential use of any sound sources that are not in the public domain or that do not come from the museum’s audio and audio-visual archives is not to surpass a maximum amount determined by the technical specifications of the project as presented in the application.


  • There is no age limit to apply.
  • To be eligible, candidates must be citizens of a country located on one of these continents or holding double nationality.
