In the perspective of supporting non-European contemporary creation, in particular in the field of photography, the musée du quai Branly has launched since 2008 an artistic creation subsidy program.

The Photography Residencies program gives every year one or several photographers – native from one of the four continents represented in the collection of the musée du quai Branly – the chance to develop an innovative work, in coherence with their personal aesthetic path.

The musée du quai Branly Photography Residencies benefit to the support and enhancement of an artistic expression barely visible in France, by financing part or all of a creative project. The photographic works produced as part as this program are intended to enrich the museum’s collections at the end of every residency period. Thus, they contribute to the constitution of the contemporary photographic collection of the museum.

Simultaneously a museum, a cultural center, and a place for research and teaching, the musée du quai Branly was born from the political desire to highlight non-European cultures, in the heart of Paris. The museum gathers a collection of 300 000 objects, a considerable collection of graphic art and a photographic collection composed of more than 700 000 pieces. The museum’s policy is based on a dynamic and opened proposal: “where cultures meet in dialogue.” This idea is the driving force behind most of the Museum’s lines of action: cultural programming, disseminating and sharing knowledge and expertise with the cultures originating the collections, international cooperation, and making the collections available to others.
