Nestled in the French Pyrenees at 750m altitude, 10km from the Spanish border and surrounded by snowcapped peaks, waterfalls and forests, is the picturesque thermal town of Aulus-les-bains. In the town, housed in a beautifully renovated 19th century hotel, is CAMP - the first of a new breed of arts residency. In 2018, CAMP will run a short series of five-day arts, music, writing and arts-activist sessions. These are no ordinary courses - they are intense, artistic catalysts run by internationally acclaimed practitioners; creative flashpoints designed to change the lives of everyone involved. Our 2018 schedule includes sessions lead by Laure Prouvost (Turner Prize winner), legendary composers Gavin Bryars, Christina Kubisch and Annea Lockwood, Chris Watson (Cabaret Voltaire founder and David Attenborough's sound recordist), Walt Donahue (script editor for Wim Wenders, Wes Anderson, Coen Brothers), celebrated performance artist Anne Bean, ecoacoustics expert Leah Barclay and many others.

CAMP also houses advanced facilities available to all residential students - audio studios, digital video and photography editing suites, rehearsal and performance spaces, fine art studios, a cinema, a dark room and an arts library. Accommodation is provided at the centre in peaceful, private rooms, and excellent catering is included.

It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. It's about generating revolutions, incubating creative minds and bringing the best emerging practitioners in all artistic fields to their full potential.

The work we do bringing these revolutionary opportunities to emerging artists at a critical point in their development would not be possible without the help of our supporters - that's you! By supporting CAMP, you're providing catalytic opportunities for new artists, musicians, writers and performers, generating new waves of creative thought.
