Who: Composers who have at least two years of artistic practice and who have had at least one work broadcasted or interpreted publicly in places or contexts recognized by their peers. 

Section: Music 

Duration: 2 months


The Goethe-Institut Montreal, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and Le Vivier – Carrefour des musiques nouvelles are pleased to offer a two month residency in composition in new music to a composer living and working in Germany. This residency will offer the composer important experiences in his/her professional development. A new environment and the chance to meet other local artists will create favourable conditions for creativity, the development of his/her artistic practice and for an international career.

The residency in Montreal aims to offer networking opportunities and long-term exchange between Québécois and German composers, as well as contributing to the development of their artistic practices. The residency also aims to contribute to the dissemination of the selected composers’ works in Québec and Germany.

Within the framework of this exchange, a Québécois composer will reside two months at HELLERAU – European Center for the Arts Dresden.
