Deadline: 15 March 2016
Call for entries
Artist in Residence program
Le CouveNt is a creative space dedicated to music, visual arts, writing, multimedia and performing arts. Its MISSION is to promote contemporary artistic practices and the exchange between artists and co-creation projects that connect different creative processes.
Our approach includes:
Art Residencies & workshops
Musical Performance Coaching sessions
Concerts, Exhibits & Performances.
Sound recording sessions
Video events (WebTV…)
While in residence, the artists will benefit from an intense production time enhanced by the exchange of ideas and experiences with peers. The “CouveNt” can provide lodging for up to 20 people and working space for up to 5 visual artists at the same time.
The “CouveNt” also organizes Open Studio events, for the public to witness the creative process and work in progress of the artists in residence. The purpose is to provide the forum for communication and exchange of ideas. Each artist designs the format, agenda and dynamics that best suits their work and the messages they want to pass on to the audience.
Le CouveNt works with a large network of local professional artists (arts advisory committee) and technicians (sound, lighting) and it is recognized as the regional culture & arts reference.
Our premises include an old convent (17th century), that has been restored over the last five years with the aim to preserve its history and style. There are several working spaces (individual or shared), several exhibition & concert rooms, individual and double bedrooms, a large common kitchen/dining room, sitting and relaxing area. Le ConveNt is also equipped with Wi-Fi & ethernet internet access. Computers (Mac OS X / Windows / Linux) are also available on demand.
A car is available for the individual use of artists in residence without additional cost (except for fuel). In order to benefit from this service you will need to bring with you a valid driver license.
This project is supported by the European Union through the LEADER funds.
Encouraging the implementation of integrated, high-quality and original strategies for sustainable cultural and artistic development, It has a strong focus on partnership and networks of exchange of experience.
