About the Event
The Pleasures and Palate of Provence: An Artist’s Journey
WHO IS THIS TRIP FOR?
On all of these programs, we collaborate with locals and experts in the arts to design each experience. Professionals and curious individuals attend.
This trip is for a curious individual who is excited to learn and engage in working hands-on with various projects, taught by experts at each location, or as a creative residency for self-directed work.
This is an immersive experience that is in a group setting, best suited for those who like community and small group travel. We have people of all levels, abilities, and ages ranges attend our programs from university students, university professors, professionals in the arts, and curious individuals. We believe a multigenerational and multi-skill leveled community is strong and sustainable. Note: All participants must be 18 years or older or accompanied by a guardian.

WHAT SUPPLIES DO I NEED?
If you are a creative professional working independently on your own projects, you may arrive with or ship supplies to the location before the trip. If you are participating in the workshops and group learning exercizes, we will send you a detailed list of what to bring and how to pack your supplies before your departure. You may pack or ship supplies to the location.
DO I NEED TRAVEL INSURANCE?
We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance. Travel insurance allows you to seek reimbursement for your trip costs; if your trip plans change for unforeseeable reasons, or if you need to get medical help, emergency transport, and for theft, loss, or damage of items while traveling. For best coverage, always insure the full trip cost within two weeks of your initial trip deposit and note that most ‘Cancel For Any Reason’ policies must be purchased on the date of your initial deposit.
