Creative European Pepinieres and Est-Nord-Est Centre > Open call for residencies (Quebec)

En français

As part of their mobility programme, the Creative European Pepinieres and Est-Nord-Est Centre are launching a call for applications for artist residencies in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, Quebec. For its 2019 programming, ENE welcomes two European artists for residency periods of two months each.

Amount of the grant offered to the selected artists

Est-Nord-Est (ENE) is an artist-run centre the mandate of which is to provide an international community of artists and authors in contemporary art with support by offering space and time for research and experimentation, as well as privileged access to local resources and knowhow.

The year 2019 is pivotal in the history of ENE: following the complete reconstruction of the centre’s premises on its current site, the year will be one of change as ENE inaugurates its new home.

The eight-week residency periods bring together four artists and one author writing about contemporary art and are generally offered in the spring, summer, and fall. However, this year ENE undertook a major capital investment project, as part of which its premises will be completely reconstructed by summer 2019. Due to this major construction project, ENE is cancelling its spring 2019 residency and will offer residencies in the summer and fall. As a consequence, only eight artists and two authors will be selected for ENE’s 2019 programming, which will be held in the new building for the first time.

Proposed field of expression for this residence: Visual and Media Arts

The eight-week residency includes:

  • Residency honorarium of CAD $4,000

  • Access to an individual studio-workshop to be used for work and lodging

  • Access to specialized equipment (wood, metal, ceramics)

  • Access to a documentation centre (books, magazines)

  • Access to local resources

  • Technical and logistical support

  • Use of a bicycle

The call is aimed primarily at emerging professional artists aged up to 35 years (the emerging artist concept is left to the discretion of the jury, which will be based primarily on the artist's career more than on his/her age). You need to have a professional artistic status, have one European citizenship.

Deadline: 1 December 2018
