Request a Grant Writer

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.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The allowable maximum that may be accorded for a project is $10,000.

Term of Contract:

The residency will last for two months, and will take place in July and August 2015.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligibility is restricted to professional artists and writers engaged in the following artistic disciplines: circus arts, digital arts, media arts, multidisciplinary arts, visual arts, popular song, storytelling, dance, literature, arts and crafts, music, architectural research and theater.

Professional Artists:

The term artists includes writers, storytellers and arts and crafts persons. An artist is defined as follows:

- They declare themselves to be professional artists.
- They create works or practice an art of their own account or offer their services for remuneration as creators or performers, especially in fields under CALQ responsibility.
- They have gained the recognition of their peers.
- They disseminate or publicly interpret their works in places and/or contexts recognized by their peers.

To apply for a grant, an artist must be a Canadian citizen or a landed immigrant as contemplated in section 2(1) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. In both instances, they must usually reside in Quebec and have been Quebec residents for the past twelve (12) months.

Eligible Expenses:
- Creation expenses (these expenses offset the loss or reduction of income stemming from the realization of the project and cover fixed subsistence costs: rent, food, telephone, electricity, childcare, and so on). These costs do not have to be itemized and are attributable to the artist.
- Artist travel expenses.
- Professional honoraria, travel expenses and per diem allowances of contract workers, collaborators, consultants, technicians or any other specialist who contributes short-term expertise to the realization of the project.
- Costs of materials, equipment rental and transportation stemming from realization of the project.
- Promotion expenses.
- Mentorship or professional development expenses.

NOT ELIGIBLE:
- Groups are not eligible for this section of the program.
- Artists or writers may not, within a given registration period, submit two projects in the same section, regardless of the discipline.
