In 2021, the DRAC Grand Est supported 32 artists for a total of €176,000 through individual support for visual arts creation and studio installation.


Support for all visual arts:

painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, performance, photography, video, digital art, graphics, design, styling and fashion.

Two types of aid

- aid to the creation

They finance the development of a project or artistic research (AIC) without necessarily leading to the realization of a work;

- Aid for planttion and purchase

Shes are used to finance workshop fit-ups or equipment acquisition (AIA) necessary for the practice of visual arts. The amount of this assistance may not exceed 50% of the total cost of the work or equipment.

Of a maximum amount of €8,000, the AIC and AIA are allocated, after the opinion of the regional advisory committee of creation aid, according to the following criteria:
- artistic interest of the project;
- conditions for implementation;
- involvement of the artist in a professional activity (registration with the enterprise formalities centre and obtaining a Siret number);
- administrative residence in the Great East.

Out of 68 applications filed in 2021, the Grand Est Commission granted 16 start-up grants and 16 installation grants for a total amount of €176,000.

Two exceptional grants in 2021

In order to promote the professionalization of artists from the Great East, the DRAC set up an experiment in 2021. On the basis of the recommendation of the Regional Advisory Commission for Creative Assistance, enhanced support was given to two of the winning artists, creation and installation.

Claire Hannick and Manon Harrois have thus obtained additional support of €8,000. This exceptional support should allow them a better exposure of their creation in the Greater East and outside the region.

Manon Harrois

After studying art at the ENSAAMA Olivier de Serres in Paris and an artistic stay in Niger which she kept the imprint of ancestral rites, Manon Harrois continued his journey in Chile and Portugal. She then moved to Troyes. Sculpting, drawing or performing are only for her revelators of spaces.
