Founded in 1965 by the City of Paris, the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Cité Internationale des Arts is a public art foundation still going strong today. French and international artists and musicians are given the option of renting a flat and workshop space in the Cité (on application) in one of two locations: the main hub in the Marais with 270 individual workshops, and the smaller one in Montmartre with 30. As well as bringing creative minds together, the Cité nurtures spaces for them to develop their talents: an exhibition area and an auditorium where they can share projects with one another and outside audiences. With on-site artists from a variety of backgrounds, the exhibitions on at the Cité are diverse and change regularly. Since it opened, over 18,000 professional artists have been drawn to Paris for a stay at the Cité.
