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.

To underline this year of change, while remaining open to artists of all types, the 2018 program particularly encourages artists in whose practices memory, archive, transmission and oblivion are issues; those who address notions of geography, travel, the environment, and ecology; those whose work is based on ideas about architecture, renewal, and transformation; and those whose approach involves studying the local environment or intervention on the land. Deadline: 1 February 2018.
