Haiti - NOTICE : Artistic residency program, call for Candidacy
Proposed by the Association 4 Chemins (A4C), this artistic residency program aims on the one hand to support artists from the very early stages of their creative ideas, but above all to decentralize cultural activities confined to Port-au-Prince. This Program offers innovative creators from all walks of life to spend precious time developing their creations in cities in Haiti.

These residences are done in partnership with cultural institutions present in these cities who benefit from the workshops led by the selected artists, intended for residents of the respective areas: art centers, performance halls, libraries, museums, art galleries... Other public institutions (school, asylum, prison...) are all structures that can accommodate the artists selected in their research.

The disciplines concerned include the performing arts, the visual arts, the transdisciplinary arts, etc. The end of the stay leads to a public presentation of the artist’s work with his trainees.

The duration of the stay is one month and the laureates will be allocated a fixed stay allowance of 90,000 gourdes.

The candidate must :

  • Apply individually;
  • Being a creator in a discipline of the living and / or visual arts, or transdisciplinary, etc ...;
  • Have an artistic project related to an interior city of Haiti;
  • Justify several years (at least 3 years) of professional practice;
  • Being released from professional activity during the stay;
  • No age limit required.

Application file :
Applicants must submit a detailed request covering the following points :

  • A precise description of the project indicating the specific objectives of the stay in relation to a given city. The period of residence desired by the artist must be indicated between August and October;
  • A short CV;
  • An artistic file (CD photos, audio, video, or documents by email);
  • The project and CV must be written in French and / or Creole.

Funding and support :
The winner will receive 80% of their living allowance upon leaving their residence.
The balance will be paid to him upon return, upon receipt of the original supporting documents for the costs associated with the residence, as well as a report on the stay which must be submitted within two months of the return.

Any reduction in the time of stay will result in a deduction in proportion to the number of days actually worked on site. Payments will only be made once the administrative procedures have been settled with the Association Quatre Chemins. The living allowance allocated to the winner is fixed and final. All costs and expenses incurred outside of this allowance remain the responsibility of the winner.

In no case may the stay be split.

If for personal or professional reasons, the winner could not maintain their stay during the current year, it cannot in any case be carried over to the following year. Prize winners are responsible for their transport and insurance. They will be held responsible for any damage that may result from the execution of their stay program.

It is recognized that the program may make changes if circumstances so require. In this case, the winners will be formally informed without prejudice to the objectives pursued.

Artists must send their application files to the following email address : festivalquatrechemins@gmail.com
