The Beauvaisis Agglomeration Community and its partners are launching a call for applications for a residency-mission for visual artists.

What is the principle behind this call for applications?

Motivated by a desire to strengthen the bonds of solidarity between the communes and the inhabitants, to guarantee access to the culture of all the population, to reveal a common identity and to promote the territory, its memories and its know-how,The Beauvaisis Agglomeration Community wishes to invest public space as a place of cultural transmission.

Around the project “Growing Connections!” , it will be a matter of giving the Beauvaisins as well as tourists the opportunity to discover works differently, without having to cross the door of a dedicated establishment and see their daily environment transformed.

The partners would like this residence-mission to be an opportunity to open up the different sociogeographical areas, Urban and rural, through inventive proposals of artistic itinerary promoting on the one hand the appropriation of cultural and natural heritage and, on the other hand, the creation of circulations, exchanges and human links throughout this itinerary.
