Artists’ Residencies

Privileged access to a rehearsal room, so that creative work can take place under optimal conditions.

Residencies at Place des Arts allow artists to develop new performing arts projects under the best possible conditions.

Through its Artists’ Residency Program, Place des Arts seeks to support the research, experimentation, and creative activities of both professional and emerging artists. The optimal artistic working conditions provided through residencies foster the production of original new works.

To date, the program has hosted several hundred artists. Our rehearsal rooms are also open free of charge to emerging artists of the Société d’avancement de la chanson d’expression française (SACEF) and the Atelier lyrique de l'Opéra de Montréal. In 2022, Place des Arts made an innovative move to welcome choreographer and documentary filmmaker Rhodnie Désir as an Associate Artist in a pilot project. This cooperation allowed her to create the show Symphonie de cœurs.

Place des Arts is once again inviting professional artists and companies in the performing arts to submit their applications for a residency during the 2024-2025 cultural season.


*Available in French only.

Artists’ residencies are made possible through the financial support of the Fondation de la Place des Arts.
