In 2013, the Cité internationale de la bande dessinée et de l’image and the Abbaye de Fontevraud are launching their exchange residency programme: a resident from each school will be staying in the other to extend and complete the work in hand.
Chinese illustrator Chen Chen, who stayed in Angoulême in 2012, will be at Fontevraud in October 2013.
As far as Fontevraud is concerned, British artist Kristian Andrews was chosen by the approval committee of the Maison des auteurs. Thanks to a partnership with the Annecy Festival, the short film Call for Projects laureate, Veljko Popovic (Croatia), will receive a work stay at Fontevraud for his film 10 Things You Need to Know about Deers.
