As you may have noticed, what makes us different from other sites where you can find calls for applications is that we work with hotels and we choose them for their qualities and their commitment to support artists. There are several reasons for this, the first being that the founder of Staam up is an artist himself and is very sensitive to the respect that events owe to artists. Also, we consider that having four walls and hanging paintings on them does not make an art event worthy of the name. This is why we ask organisers for several mandatory pieces of information about their event. 

At Staam up we value quality over quantity.


As you will have noticed, the entrance fees for events offered by hotels are very low.

They serve to keep the platform running smoothly and to continue to find you great exhibition and stay opportunities.


Plastic artists! Whatever their level, from beginner to experienced.

That being said, you may be wondering what exactly we mean by “plastic artists”. It includes artists who specialise in painting, collage, sculpture, photography, mixed media, installations, or drawing.

In other words - plastic artists, whatever their level of experience, origin, gender, religion, skin colour, favourite dish, height, preferred sleeping position…

Each and every plastic artist is welcome on Staam up!

No, Staam up is designed to make it easy to publish, search and register for calls for entries across Europe and the world. It is not an online gallery. 

Instead, we have an art dealer on staff whose job at Staam up is to identify works (yours perhaps) that he finds particularly worthy, and buy them directly from the artists for our enjoyment and that of the collectors who trust us.

But above all, the opportunities to sell are offered to you by the hotels, either directly from them or from the many guests who frequent their hotels.


We have imagined the best possible meeting between your hotel and the artists. Publishing your call for entries on Staam up means :

A huge visibility refined by our developers and supported by our marketing team:

- your call for applications (and therefore your hotel) will be seen by thousands of artists.

Consolidated processing of all applications: we take care of collecting registrations, files and everything else needed for the event to run smoothly. We take care of the back office.

If your hotel is booking through Staam up, so much the better! We will be very happy. That's it! We don't charge any commission or fees on these bookings, that's not our job.

On the other hand, if a work of art sells thanks to you, thanks to the opportunity you have offered to the artist, you will receive a significant commission on the sale.

Le Lou Calen - Exposition
Du 10/12/2021 au 01/05/2022

The history of the hotel Le Lou Calen is intimately linked to that of the village of Cotignac, making it an address not to be missed in Provence. Its lands extend over what was, at the beginning of the 17th century, the property of the monastery of the white penitents and still houses some sumptuous buildings today.

It is an extraordinary place that has attracted artists and art lovers time and again.

Many celebrities have passed through Le Lou Calen, including Joe Dassin, Henri Salvador, Serge Lama, Brigitte Bardot, the bands Pink Floyd and The Cure and even the wife of General De Gaulle. It is therefore a place that benefits from a great notoriety in France, but also internationally since a Californian Lou Calen opened in Palm Springs, where the singer Joe Dassin, intimately linked to the history of the hotel, had a house. The Californian Lou Calen had a great time thanks to its notoriety, which allowed it to welcome big stars such as Eric Iddle and Robin Williams.

Today, Lou Calen is reborn as a human and cultural project. Well beyond its original hotel vocation, the project gives life to numerous actions in the heart of the village, such as the flagship project: the creation of the art centre La Falaise, which hosts 3 exhibitions per year in Cotignac.

It is therefore quite natural that the Lou Calen is proposing this call for applications with a view to letting one or two artists (depending on their preferences) benefit from this luxurious space turned towards simplicity, and above all, towards art.

The selected artist (or the two selected artists) will be offered five months of exhibition in the mythical walls of Lou Calen, where many art lovers pass by.

As you can see, this is an absolutely exceptional call for applications.

No theme is imposed. 

There will be extensive communication about this exhibition, and you may be the lucky one.

There is no need to remind you that the fundamental principle of Staam up is the anonymity of the applications. Only the images of the works will be used for the selection phase. No CV, no letter of intent, no name. Each and every one of you can be offered this opportunity to exhibit for five months in this exceptional place.
