In Marrakesh, the Montresso Art Foundation has been committed since 2009 to the establishment and development of an artists' residency: Jardin Rouge. The residency program enables selected artists to develop a visual arts project by providing the technical, material and financial resources as well as a workplace. Open to visitors, by appointment, Jardin Rouge aims to build a factory of links and sharing. Events are organised both inside and outside the Foundation, with a wide range of cultural and artistic institutions, to provide artists with exhibition spaces in which to present their work and to raise their profile in Morocco and abroad. In agreement with the artist, a selection of works produced during the residency is offered for purchase.
The residency period is planned for a minimum duration of one month and a maximum of three months. The artist may be invited to return to continue his research on the basis of the initial project or in the development of new projects in agreement with the Foundation.
