Through professional training, mentorship, as well as various documentation of teachings and practices, we wish to accompany a cohort of artists in their process of realizing projects which include a digital aspect. The program is designed as a pathway on the course of several months, from January to September 2019. The activity cycle includes the following steps, offering a general portrait of Quebec’s cultural system to then address more specific issues in relation to projects proposed by participants.

  • Dates : 12 hours (2 days) Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th of January, 2019
  • Cost (including lunch) : 25 $ / day
B. Specialized training aiming to conceptualize digital projects for web, stage presentation or installation. (expert presentations, tool demonstrations, collective ideation)
  • Dates : 24 hours (4 days) Four Saturdays: March 16th and 23rd, April 6th and 13th, 2019
  • Cost (independent lunch) : 150 $ for 4 days
C. Mentorship with experts/instructors (personalized in regards to participants’s projects. 10 individual will be selected on the basis of their project)
  • 12 hours (free mentorship for the ten selected projects)
The program will conclude during the fall of 2019 with a showing organized as part of the LatinArte Festival. This event will aim to share teachings, broadcast the productions and reflect on their dissemination. All trainings will be held in French, with support in english and spanish if needed.
