Grants of up to $10,000 to Quebec professional artists and writers for annual research and creative residencies. One residency is offered in Inukjuak, with the other residency to be located in Kangiqsujuaq or another northern village of Nunavik, allowing selected applicants to benefit from a two-month creative and artistic renewal sojourn.
Projects submitted within the framework of the residency must, in so far as possible, involve interaction with the community with regard to the elaboration or dissemination of the works. The applicant must explain the links that he wishes to create with village residents and the dynamic means through which he intends to integrate his artistic activities into the community.
Applicants may indicate in which of the two villages they wish to engage in the residency, otherwise the selection committee will choose the place of the residency in light of an analysis of the applicant's file.
Projects presented must comply with at least one of the following objectives:
1. Support and stimulate artists by offering them a dynamic environment and the means to produce and disseminate their works.
2. Foster renewal periods for artists and writers by according them access to a fresh and stimulating cultural environment.
3. Facilitate exchanges of artistic or literary viewpoints and contribute to the formation of enduring ties between the artists and writers of Nunavik and those from other regions of Quebec.
