Call for proposals : D'Arts et de rêves Creative residency
February 17, 2021

D'Arts et de rêves artist residence in Sutton is launching its call for projects for the 2021 and 2022 residencies.

After a year marked by a major renovation project of its main building and by strict health regulations due to the ongoing pandemic, the organization will reopen its facilities this summer to welcome artists from the communities of visual arts, literary arts, and contemporary circus arts. The call invites artisans from these communities to present their approaches and projects for residencies lasting from two to six weeks. An independent jury made up of professionals from each discipline will select the projects and artists.

New this year, D'Arts et de rêves will offer grants in an open competition for all professional artists who wish to present a three-week project and obtain a fee of $1,500 in addition to free accommodation and access to a studio. One grant per discipline will be awarded, also by an independent jury.

D'Arts et de rêves welcomes a large proportion of Quebec and Canadian artists as well as many creators from all over the world. With its state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, the residence is distinguished by its bucolic environment, on a magnificent site in the village of Sutton. The artists in residence have the opportunity to be accompanied in the production of events to which the local population is invited. These cultural mediation activities are at the heart of the mission of D'Arts et de rêves, which aims to promote the work of artists during their time of residency in Sutton.

Artists who wish to go into residence between July and December 2021 are invited to respond to the call for projects before March 31.

The call for projects and the forms can be found on their website.
