Call for proposals – Penpals

Published on in Share

Is there someone you have wanted to collaborate with but have never been able to be in the same place at the same time?  Following last spring’s Résidences à distance, the CCOV would like to invite you to apply for a second edition, called Relations épistolaires – Penpals. This paid project is intended to develop a co-mentorship relationship between an artist and another individual between February and August 2021. It is a proposal for a structured correspondence to exchange guidance, and interchange roles of knower and not-knower. This could take many forms (letters, audio, video). Penpal exchanges could be established between generations, sister communities, very different communities, or within one specific community. 

Please apply with a letter of intention that describes the two individuals partaking in the exchange, and the organization of time, mode(s) and material(s) that you will explore. If you are selected, then you will be asked to partake in  an exit interview in a format of your choice at the end of the 6-month project period .


Deadline: Deadline: Friday February 5th. Selected participants will be notified: February 22nd. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact
