Our mandate targets both the development of research and the support for dissemination of contemporary art. As an organization dedicated to art production, our activities consist of encouraging research and reflection on contemporary art and its processes through group residencies of artists, curators, and writers in contemporary art. The dissemination activities aim to increase the impact of the work developed in residency.
About Est-Nord-Est, Résidence d'artistes
The aim of this important financing project is to endow the centre with financial leverage that will enable it to continue its mandate to provide national and international contemporary artists with a residency program.
For a second time, Est-Nord-Est has received major support from Placements Culture. The intention of this program is to encourage individuals, foundations and private Quebec companies to give generously to non-profit cultural organizations, as it will triple the amount of each donation.
Our first fundraising campaign, held in 2010-2011, was a great success as we exceeded our objective and raised $26,227. Thanks to your gifts and Placements Culture, we created a fund of $100,656 devoted entirely to our building project.
The objective of our present campaign is to raise $25,000 by November 15, 2013 and we are convinced that with your help we can achieve this.
