Libres comme l'art
Program of creative residencies for professional artists with the school system
Deadline : December 20, 2012.
The Conseil des arts de Montréal (CAM), the Conférence régionale des élus de Montréal (CRÉ) and the Ministère de l’Éducation du Loisir et du Sport (MELS) with its program Une école montréalaise pour tous are proud to partner up for Libres comme l’art : a program in artistic residencies in collaboration with Montréal’s school network.
A program in artistic residencies represents a time period in which creating artists dispose of an adequate working space to complete their creation. An artistic residency in a scholastic environment implies a certain number of interactions between students and artists to put the youth in direct contact with the artistic professional process. It also allows artists to validate their ideas by exchanging with different people (creation).
All partners in the project agree that Libres comme l’art will bring many benefits such as motivation, discovery and a broadening of horizon for the students involved. In addition, the regular companionship with artists can have a positive impact by offering the students a new model through a steady bond regular enough to establish trust.
Libres comme l’art will work on a call for submissions basis coordinated by the Conseil des arts de Montréal. For the 2012-2013 school year, project must be presented by December 15th, 2011.
All non-profit organizations requesting funding must meet the following requirements:
• Legal Status
• must have their headquarters within the Montreal territory;
• must have a board of directors composed of a majority of Canadian citizens or Canadian landed immigrants;
• must have, as their principal mission, the creation, production and presentation of arts activities;
• Meet the professional criteria determined by the CAM (please refer to the CAM's General Financial Assistance Program).
Eligible artistic disciplines are the visual arts, media arts, film and video, dance, literature, fine crafts, music, new artistic practices, circus arts, and theatre.
Organizations funded by the CAM will have priority. However, even though they may meet the criteria, certain organizations are not eligible, such as public and Para public organizations mandated by municipal administrations and corporations.
Individuals cannot apply for the CAM's financial aid programs and requests involving activities that have already been produced will not be considered.
