The Communauté de communes Pays de Mormal and its partners are launching a call for applications for two residencies in the direction of artists from all fields of expression.

What is the principle behind this call for applications?

Motivated by the desire to reduce inequalities in access to art and culture, the Communauté de communes Pays de Mormal, has set itself an ambitious goal of generalizing arts and cultural education for children, young adults in its territory and thus contribute to the formation of their artistic and cultural education.

The partners are able to launch this offer knowing that they can rely on the collective strength and energy of the many local actors of arts and cultural education, whether they are professionals of culture, teachers, animators, educators, mediators social workers, health professionals, etc.

This is why the community of communes of the Pays de Mormal, in close partnership with the Hauts-de-France Regional Cultural Affairs Directorate, the Rectorate of the Lille Academy – Academic Delegation for Arts and Culture, the departmental management of the services of the national education and in connection with the departmental council of the North and the regional council of the Hauts-de-France offers two residences-mission for two artists from all fields of expression whose approach and research are deliberately in the field of contemporary creation.

Artists are asked to compose and co-build around the theme “Learn to play together, to the rhythms of sounds and/or body movements”.

The residency period is scheduled from February 12 to June 16, 2024. An immersion week will take place upstream from October 9 to 13, 2023.
