DEADLINE EXTENDED: Artist-in-Residence Exchange Program: New York State / Province of Québec

DEADLINE EXTENDED! November 18, 2017 – 11:50PM

Arts Services Initiative of Western New York, Inc. (ASI), on behalf of the New York State Council on the Arts in partnership with the Province of Québec Council of Arts and Letters, is seeking proposals from qualified individuals from New York State to become artists in residence in the Province of Québec during calendar year 2017.

ASI is seeking three professional and unique artists from throughout New York State to take residency for three months in the Province of Québec during the calendar year 2017.  While there the artist will create work and engage the community in a meaningful way.

ASI, on behalf of the New York State Council on the Arts, will provide each artist a stipend of $9,000 to cover their costs for travel, materials, and labor.  The artist cannot be compensated in any way while in Québec, and all displays of work and/or performances must be free and open to the public. 

In 2011, New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) and the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec (CALQ) concluded a reciprocity agreement to develop lasting artistic and cultural exchanges between New York State and Québec. This agreement calls for the creation of an annual exchange program of professional artists and writers under which the applicants selected engage in creative residencies and periods of artistic renewal in New York State and Québec. The artists participating in this program enjoy complete autonomy and define the objectives of their stay and elaborate the parameters and conditions for its realization. Through this agreement, NYSCA wishes to offer New York State artists a new career development tool and develop fruitful collaboration with Québec cultural communities.

Respondents are required to submit one copy of the application as well as their letter from the host site through ASI’s online grant application system by 11:59 pm noon EST on November 18, 2016. The application can be accessed at www.asiwny.org/service-programs/artist-residency-in-quebec/.

Proposals received electronically after 11:59pm EST on November 18, 2016 will be automatically rejected without exception and without review.
