Est-Nord-Est is starting a capital development project breaking ground in the spring 2018. The 2018 programming call for proposals has therefore been postponed for this year. Sign up to our newsletter to receive updates.

Established in 1992, Est-Nord-Est, at once an artist residency and an artist-run centre, supports the development of research and experimentation in the field of contemporary art, providing a professional environment conducive to exchange and rich in traditional knowledge. To achieve its mandate, the centre offers one- to two-month residencies for artists, curators and writers engaged in contemporary art. Each residency brings together four artists and a curator and/or author in the village of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, where they can benefit from local expertise and the unique rural environment of the St. Lawrence River. Est-Nord-Est offers technical and logistical support to its residents, thus providing a flexible production framework for the exploration of new creative avenues.

Est-Nord-Est is a member of the RCAAQ and the RES-ARTIS network, and welcomes artists involved in the Pépinières européennes pour jeunes artistes program.
