The Association of Cultural Encounter Centres – ACCR – today comprises 22 members in France and 22 in Europe and further afield (Canada, Brazil, Australia).

The 2016 call for projects is open.
It is aiming at artists, researchers and culture professionals coming from countries other than France. Applications from the following countries will be examined in priority:
- Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Palestine, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Irak

- Brazil, Haiti, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Cuba, Colombia
- Francophone Sub-Saharan Africa

The Odyssée artist-in-residency program allows residents whose projects have been selected by a CCR (Centre Culturel de Rencontre), member of the French network, to receive 1200€ per month and the refunding of their travel fees (up to a determined level according to the citizen’s country). Residents are staying free of charge, within the Centre that has accepted them. Whenever possible, the Centre puts at their disposal material necessary for their residency project. The period of residency can vary between 1 and 6 months.
