On the proposal of, and in collaboration with, the THEATER FEDERATIOUN, the Fonds culturel national launches a call for applications for two grants for creative artists in the arts sector (directors, authors, sound designers) to participate in an artistic incubator, from 24 May to 2 June 2023 in Montreal.

The project

The Commission Internationale du Théâtre Francophone (CITF) and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) are setting up an international artistic incubator.

Selected by the members of the CITF, the artists will be part of a group of fifteen professionals from the French-speaking countries who will participate in a 10-day artistic incubator in Montreal. They will have the opportunity to forge special professional ties, participate in artistic creation laboratories, have exchanges with artists and professionals from the Quebec theatre community, and attend various shows and activities at the Festival TransAmériques, which takes place in Montreal from May 24 to June 7, 2023.

Artists who wish to apply must be inspired by the theme “Flamboyant like oracles”. Through this theme, CITF is looking for artists who are citizens, who are committed to their practice, who speak out on the burning issues of society and who wish to share their art and their thoughts with artists from the Francophonie.

Throughout the week, the participants will meet with artists whose artistic approach focuses on engaged art or the creation of works that claim, denounce, take a stand or defend a particular cause.
