Annual Call

Each year, LA SERRE launches a call for emerging live art artists. Two residency formats, closely related to the initiatives carried out by the organization, allow them to develop or deepen the foundations of their creative process. For an entire year, they will receive variable-geometry support rooted in a benevolent space catered for research and creation that encourages experimentation and reflection. As they progress, LA SERRE and its partners will offer them a preferential access to a range of activities in order to consolidate their general approach in line with a decidedly transdisciplinary perspective (cross-residency, seminars, etc.).

Two singular paths, that intersect throughout the year, are offered:

Path #1
In keeping with the Nomadic Residencies, this first path allows a cohort of artists, creators, playwrights, researchers, cultural workers, and activists to take advantage of a multimodal conversation space within which they can test or ponder new ideas while evolving in an environment that facilitates interdisciplinary friction. This interstitial circulation space, between creation studios and public places, offers an open zone, a collective field to invest to rejuvenate your practise, to share what falls off, to grow on fallow, to articulate still fragile ideas and to celebrate unsuccessful thinking.

  • Periods of collective work, spread over the year in a protected, inclusive space and without any production requirement
  • A week of in-studio research for each participant
  • Exchanges with knowledge brokers from various fields
  • A preferential access to various initiatives offered by LA SERRE and its partners
  • A period of exchange with a specific audience, depending on the nature of the project
  • Research grant

Path # 2
Framed by the Nicolas-Viel Park and the Rivière des Prairies, LA SERRE’s studios offer a research environment at the edge of the city, conducive to movement of imagination and its metamorphosis. For two weeks, the artists will take advantage of this warm and stimulating workspace, where they can lay the foundations of a project and/or carry forward a creative process in the privacy of the spaces made available to them. Invited to partake in several initiatives developed by the organization, they will be given greater opportunities to broaden their general approach, always within the scope of interdisciplinary roots.

  • Two weeks of in-studio research
  • A period of exchange with a specific audience, depending on the nature of the artist’s project
  • A preferential access to various initiatives offered by LA SERRE and its partners
  • Research grant
