Call For Applications : Langage Plus 2021 Map Program International Artists Residencies in Alma, Québec (grant up $4000)

In the Framework of the Map mobility programme, Pépinières européennes de Création and Langage Plus (+ its partner the Sagamie Center) launch a call for applications for a 2 months residency, from January 27 to March 27, 2021.

Amount of the scholarship attributed to the selected artist

The Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec offers a grant of 2 000$/month for a maximum total of 4 000$.

The Residence

Demystifying contemporary art by building bridges between creation and human dialogue is a strategy aiming to broaden the public’s sensitivity to art. The artistic residency will be inspired by art and life, will be rooted in the community and its development and will develop through observation and collaboration, in communion with a group from Alma’s local or regional community. The experience will be both sensitive and instructive, will bring together different perspectives, its approach will be unique and its results  varied.

They  seek  to  democratise  art  by  progressive  development  of closer  bonds between the artist and the urban or rural communities in order to fulfill the objective of trying to integrate art into daily life, so that it may become a creative force in localities that are far away from the large metropolis. The project may be distributed  by  Langage  Plus  as  a  fitting  response  to  the  intercultural  challenge  and  a celebration uniting varied cultures.
