Creation Residencies - Impact Project
The Conseil des Arts de Montréal, Les 7 Doigts, Cirque Éloize, En Piste and TOHU are launching the first edition of a brand new pilot project.
This project will provide an opportunity for an arts collective or a circus arts organization to develop original creations, through research and exploration of new dramatic writing for circus arts, unfettered by the constraints of presentation. It also aims to promote independent, “auteur” circus works and the emergence of new aesthetics.
The recipient will receive a Conseil des Arts de Montréal grant to carry out a four-week residency, which will provide an opportunity to achieve an initial stage of documented development, further enabling them to seek out partners, and both public and private sources of funding. The recipient will also receive professional guidance and excellent networking opportunities from the circus arts national network, En piste.
The industry of the performing arts uses cutting edge methodologies and management systems. What parallels and lessons could be taken from this sector and applied to the context of your own business?
In this novel experience, we bring you behind the scenes of the performing arts world and share our knowledge of it with you. What systems and methods have been implemented in order to combine intuition, creativity, precision and efficiency?
This adventure was developed with Humance, whose experience in coaching and in company training will ensure a program adapted to your business’ needs.
