CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS : EST-NORD-EST CENTRE, MAP, ARTIST RESIDENCIES, SAINT-JEAN-PORT-JOLI, QUÉBEC, DEADLINE : DECEMBER 01, 2018

As part of their mobility program, 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

The Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec (CALQ) offers a CAD $ 4,000 grant for a two-month residency (8 weeks) to each selected artists.

THE RESIDENCE

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.

The residencies at ENE are intended for professional artists, both established and emerging, from all over the world. They offer artists and authors an opportunity to explore their research more deeply, to experiment, and to create in a cultural space that is unique, lively, and stimulating. ENE is a member of Res Artis, Pépinières européennes pour jeunes artistes and of the Regroupement des centres d’artistes autogérés du Québec.

FURTHER INFORMATION

Langage Plus and the Sagamie Center will work together to offer the artists a two months residency, once a year. Langage Plus provides the artists with housing and hosting, coordinates the project and supports the artist along their residency time (human, technical and material resources). The Center also takes in charge the contacts with a targeted group of the community and takes care of all the necessary to ensure the follow-up between the artists and the participants.

The Sagamie Center offers the invited artist the services of a technician skilled in numeric arts to assist him in his creation process.

The host organisation

Langage Plus is a space for current art where research and creation lead to a various range of exhibitions, residencies, events and educational activities. By hosting artists from here and elsewhere, Langage Plus allows a large regional audience to discover and experiment today’s art, thus participating to the notoriety of the city of Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean on the national and international scene.

The artistic direction aims at offering a diverse range of activities linked to its orientations that are :  

  • individual and collective identity;
  • territory and its appropriation;
  • art and life, its anchorage in the community and its future;
  • current art’s purposes and development possibilities.

Langage Plus is place that keeps aware about the problematics linked to current art and alsoa creation space that stays opened to the world.

Accommodation

Artists are hosted in a studio (loft), outside of Langage Plus’ space and attached to a privatespace. Private access and possibility to benefit from the other areas of the house (living room,kitchen, cleaning room). The studio is located close to a grocery store and 15 minutes awayby foot from Langage Plus and the city center.

Material resource made availableto the artist

The  artist  will  dispose  over  a  creation  studio,  a  Mac  computer  with  image  manipulationsoftware’s  (Photoshop,  Illustrator,  Final  Cut  Pro),  an  access  to  common  spaces(documentation  center,  conference  room,  kitchen,  etc.),  carpentry  equipment,  audiovisualequipment.

Meansused to promote the artist's work

Langage Plus offers the invited artist the possibility to exhibit its final work at the end of his stay in the project room of the center in the form of a solo exhibition, promoted with posters, invitation card and PR communication by press release. As the exhibition is part of the annual programming  of  the  Centre,  it  will  also  be  diffused  on  the  Québec  self-managed  artists centre’s website (RCAAQ).

The territory

The city of Alma covers a superficy of 202 Km2, with 15% as urbanized territory. The city has 30 463 inhabitants. The presence of a heavy industry ensures the economy while small and middle-sized firms contribute to the current development of the city. We want to highlight the fact that the center-city of Alma plays an important role in local dynamism and this thanks to the efforts of the local community. A large part of the territory is covered by crops that also contribute to the economic development of the city. Finally, from a geographic point of view, Alma shares a border with the Saint-Jean Lake and crossed by two rivers, the Petite Décharge and the Grande Décharge – big and small relief, that form the Saguenay river at their junction. Generally, the territory of Alma is marked by many geographic accidents like accidented reliefs, deep ravines, rock outcrops. However, although these strains can be considered as obstacles on physical or economical point of view, they contribute to give a very  particular  urban  landscape,  by  its  proximity  to  beautiful  natural  sites  that  ignore monotony. At a cultural level, the region of Saguenay-LacSt-Jean offers a wide range of activities  and  events  in  current  art  and  constitutes  a  privileged  place  for  artistic experimentation. This is partly due to the presence of numerous pedagogical institutions from secondary  to  university.  Four  Art  centers  are  present  on  the  territory,  as  well  as  three organisms providing workshops and specialized tools (carpentry, cinema production etc.), positioning the region as the 3 rd  in terms of cultural poles after the cities of Québec and Montréal.
