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.
