Pélagie Gbaguidi has recently been awarded a fellowship at the prestigious Civitella Ranieri Foundation in Umbertide, Province of Perugia, Italy. (duration). Founded in 1995, the Civitella Ranieri Foundation is an artist residency program that has hosted over 800 Fellows and Director's Guests at its 15th century castle in Umbria.
Artists require unfettered time and space to engage in their work and the world. Building on the legacy of our founder, Ursula Corning, the Civitella Ranieri Foundation opens the doors of its 15th century castle in rural Umbria annually for four six-week residency sessions of self-directed studio and work time.
Each residency community of 12-14 brings together accomplished international artists, writers, and composers at emerging and established moments in their careers. They are joined by a limited number of invited Director's Guests to foster a robust contemporary dialogue that transcends disciplines and geography. A Civitella Ranieri Fellowship changes lives, develops permanent connections, and refreshes one's work.
