Prototype: Residency for cultural journalists

03/07/2014 - 06/07/2014
@ Montréal Complètement Cirque, Montréal (Québec, Canada)

En Piste, in partnership with TOHU, organised a residency for cultural journalists, critics and chief editors working in daily papers, magazines and new media in the framework of Montréal Complètement Cirque 2014.

Inspired by the European cooperation project "Unpack the Arts", FACE proposed to test this innovative concept in Northern-America and welcome media professionals from the US and Canada to raise their awareness of today's international contemporary circus scene.

The goal of the incubated programme is to facilitate the circulation of knowledge and experience, to develop the critical discourses of its participants, and to strengthen the role of the media within the circus arts and contemporary society.

10 cultural journalists from Canada and the USA participated in this residency, they all wrote articles (publication in French and English) available to download here.
