The Darling Foundry invites Quebec artists to submit their application for this France-Quebec Exchange Residency program. For over 15 years, the Darling Foundry has been coordinating this residency program that allows young French and Québec artists to experience francophone culture overseas.

This program aims to spur exchanges between artists and feed their creativity, to foster lasting links between the countries and the artistic community, to stimulate lively and memorable cultural exchanges for the artists and help them be exclusively dedicated to their creation and production.

Artists stay at the Couvent des Récollets, an international center in Paris that is exclusively for foreign artists and scientists. Lodged for three months in a furnished room with integrated workspace, artists are invited to present their work during open door events, these studio visits presenting opportunities to interact with professionals and members of the public.

The residency covers:- Montreal – Paris flight (1st July- 30th September 2010)
- €300 per week for 12 weeks
- €630 production grant
- promotion of an open doors event

Interested artists must send an electronic application by 1 March 2010 on CD or DVD only, including the application form, to:
