Call for candidates: LOJIQ grant for an artist and an art commissioner for an exploratory trip to PLATFORM Munich


In cooperation with Montreal’s Fonderie Darling and PLATFORM Munich, Les Offices jeunesse internationaux du Québec (LOJIQ) and the Quebec Ministry of International Relations and La Francophonie would like to foster an artist and an art commissioner from Quebec in order to take part in an exploratory trip to discover the local artist scene in Munich. Throughout professional encounters, arts visits and cultural events, the participants will be able to enlarge their contact network and increase their expertise.

Just like Montreal’ Fonderie Darling, PLATFORM is installed in a former industry complex and holds artists studios as well as exhibition spaces. It was opened 5 years ago by the City of Munich and welcomes around 40 artists in its 24 studios. It is a favorable space for all kinds of emerging artistic experiments and other hybrid forms of art, for exchanges with the public and the expertise transfer between arts professionals.
Further details about the program, the admission criteria, the financial support offered or further info about the grant, are available in French here.
Submission deadline is February 17, 2015, at 11:59 pm.
