Call for applications: Prix de la relève Caisse Desjardins de la Culture

Application deadline: April 26, 2019

Young artist collectives or professional organizations are invited to apply for the 9th edition of the Prix de la relève Caisse Desjardins de la Culture. This prize rewards developmental actions taken to assist emerging artists. It comes with $5,000 purse offered by the Caisse Desjardins de la Culture.

Whether by encouraging the pooling of resources, supporting workplace integration, facilitating access to funding or proposing new organizational models, candidates for the Prix de la relève Caisse Desjardins de la Culture must demonstrate that they have helped improve the working conditions of emerging artists. This prize may be awarded to a collective (composed primarily of artists under the age of 40), a cooperative, a group or non-profit organization founded or incorporated less than seven years ago, provided that they are professionally involved in the arts and are based on the Island of Montreal.

The prize will be awarded in June 2019 at the Annual Meeting of the Conseil des arts de Montréal, an event that brings together the Montreal artistic community and its partners at the Maison du Conseil.
