Artistic Residency – OPEN CALL

You are an artist or a craftsman who wishes to experience a collective and in situ residency on a farm in the Eastern Townships? RURART is what you are looking for!

Since 2012, RURART has offered immersive artistic residencies in a rural context. Its mission is to reconnect people to nature and agriculture via the medium of art. The residencies take place either in groups each season and at specific dates (Production in residency program), or upon request from April to October (Research in residency program).

A residency on the theme : Human warmth in the heart of Winter
RURART Production in residency, the 2018 winter edition, offers the chance to various artists to experience a unique and collective residency. For a duration of 7 days, artists are invited to work on or rework a piece of their own. Following a self-organized group structure, the participants share and support each other and have autonomous space to work on their own. At the end of the week, artists are asked to share their work with the public within the same envrionment they worked in throughout the residency. The two presentations are created in the format of a path passing through different stations on the farm La Généreuse.
