Juries hard at work
With the expected completion of the major renovations, we were able to re-launch the call for residencies for 2021, which was, to say the least, a very exciting process!
This spring, an independent jury of professional artists from each of the three disciplines we represent analyzed numerous applications and we are very pleased to share with you below the names of the artists who will be visiting us before the end of the year.
Also this spring, we held our first ever scholarship competition. Indeed, we launched a call which rewarded the selected candidates with three (3) weeks in residence (free of charge) and a $1,500 bursary. One scholarship per discipline was therefore awarded by the five (5) members of a second equally independent jury.
Congratulations to this year's recipients:
- Circus arts: The Chita project
- Literary arts: Pénélope Mallard
- Visual arts: Yannick Guégen
