Méduse MAP Résidencies 2020-21
As part of their mobility program MAP, European Pepinieres of Creation and the Quebec Co-operative Méduse launched a call for applications for 2 residences that are part of its annual program residencies.
Méduse is a cooperative of artistic, cultural and community-based producers and disseminators founded in 1993. It was built around a major real-estate project funded by the Canadian Heritage Ministry, the ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Ville de Québec, the Caisse d’économie solidaire Desjardins, Gaz Métro and the founder organisations.
Based on the idea of bundling services and know-how in the artistic and cultural fields, Méduse is recognized as a leading hub for the production and dissemination of contemporary arts in Canada. Ever since it foundation, its member organizations have been offering high-end well-equipped research and creation spaces, professional artistic services, artistic residencies, training and dissemination activities, including exhibitions and screenings.
The coop’s objective is also to give professional artists access to professional artistic facilities and equipment, and offer work opportunities, to foster the improvement of their socioeconomic and practice conditions. Meduse’s singular management structure makes it a remarkable economic leverage tool for Québec City, its artists and cultural workers.
Largely accessible, Méduse is an emblematic, remarkable co-operation and interaction model on the artistic, cultural and social levels, and an outstanding development tool for creators and citizens. With its artist residency activities and foreign exchange projects, it is a major contributor to the national and international exposure of the province of Québec.
