Call for projects: Residencies at DAÏMÔN, an artist-run centre in Vieux-Hull

By Apartment613 on September 21, 2021

Le Centre de production DAÏMÔN is an artist-run centre in Vieux-Hull whose mission is to support research, production and dissemination of media arts. This fall, DAÏMÔN invites artists to “push the limits of their practice” and develop new approaches through the exploration of image, photography, video, sound arts, electronic and new media.

By providing artists with workspaces and access to the centre’s state-of-the-art equipment, DAÏMÔN encourages crossovers between artistic disciplines and especially research which intersects between the arts and technology.
