Musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac is launching the call for applications for its Sound Art Residency progamme.

The 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. There is no age limit to apply.

The jury will give precedence to pieces conceived in connection with the museum’s collections, interests and theme.
