Est-Nord-Est is an artist-run centre which offers, through its residency program, technical support and a critical context to artists engaged in the process of research / creation. Three residencies are offered per year, in the spring, summer and fall. Up to four artists and a curator or a writer may participate in each residence, eight weeks for the artists, four weeks for the curator or the writer. This is a unique occasion for both the artists and other art professionals to step out of their normal everyday situation to pursue a research project in a different, stimulating, vibrant environment; one characterised by the rural setting, the friendly welcome attentive to everyone’s needs, the abundance of local resources, the quality of the technical and logistical assistance and the richness of the exchange with the other participants of various origins participating in the residence.

Est-Nord-Est is situated in the village of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli on the south shore of the Saint Lawrence River, about 115kms from Quebec City, 350kms from Montreal. The region presents a unique mixture of forest, a strong agricultural presence and the atmosphere of the waterway.

Founded originally on the idea of offering to contemporary sculptors a context to work and exchange in contact with a unique traditional savoir-faire, Est-Nord-Est today welcomes artists from all over the world involved in all disciplines and practices associated with current visual art. Est-Nord-Est is a member of Res Artis - Worldwide Network of Artist Residencies, the Regroupement des centres d’artistes autogérés du Québec, and is among the host organisations for Pépinières européenes pour jeunes artistes.
