L’écosystème is a collaborative business model that aims to develop its own-source income. Consequently, artists who wish to work directly with l’écosystème are responsible for obtaining the support required to finance their stay themselves. Several options are available to you: government support programs, foundations, international agreements, etc. We can establish a dialogue with you about this, but please note that conditions vary from country to country.
A fee of 3,000 CAD per month is therefore required to benefit from l’écosystème residency offer.
L’écosystème has a research-creation residency approach that is distinct from that of each of its members. Indeed, several members of l’écosystème (Bande Sonimage, Center Bang, CEM, Production Center in Contemporary Art TOUTTOUT) support artists at their expense during their residency.
To do this, organizations benefit from public funding to accomplish their mission. If you wish to be financially supported by one of these organizations and not have to finance your residence yourself, you must go to their respective website and apply to their application. Each organization has its own assessment process, criteria and requirements. For more information, please contact the organization that meets your needs directly.
An email will be sent to you if your application is approved. Thanks for your interest !
