Alma (Quebec)

The Agence culturelle Grand Est/Frac Alsace and the Langage Plus modern Art centre in Alma(Quebec) have been developing a residency program since 2004 between Alsace and Quebec, in order to promote young contemporary creation within their Region. Now opened to artists from Grand Est, this project connects the new Region with Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean in order to support artists’ mobility between the two continents.

 

This residency program is part of a collaboration with the CEAAC and the Centre Sagamie. It is supported by the city of Alma, l’Office franco-québécois pour la jeunesse, the Ministry of Culture/DRAC Grand Est, as well as the Region Grand Est in France.

Selected artists benefit from an accommodation, open studios, residency grants (allowance for living and production), as well as a round-trip airfare. An exhibition at the Espace international of the CEAAC, organised by one of the program’s partner usually highlights artists’ researches at the end of their residency.

Last but not least, an individual publication is produced by the Frac Alsace, as part of a pre-existing collection.
