Rendez-Vous SocietyOctober 31, 2016 - November 1, 2016
For its 2017-2018 programming, DARE-DARE proposes to work again with the idea of Rendez-vous Society. This is a call out to artists that aspire to inscribe art in daily life; that want to immerse themselves in social environments using all manners of strategies, and within the confines of a wide range of time frames. DARE-DARE invites you to contemplate in socius art and generate encounters, gestures, and situations– in a variety of non-conventional sites (Clandestine locations– real or virtual, social structure, extra-artistic spheres of activity that could be: factories, social networks, workplaces, hospitals, blogs, stores, centres or homes for the elderly, sports clubs, abandoned buildings, train stations, etc.).
The artist or collective must be able to develop a strategy for sharing their work. DARE-DARE will organize a round table during which the artists will present and discuss their projects. Artists will be paired with a writer/theoretician in order to reflect together on the work. The writer/theoretician will also participate in the round table.DARE-DARE is offering :- an honorarium- author's rights- reimbursement of project materials- project promotion and organization- to secure the necessary authorizations and permits.

URBAN WRITING RESIDENCY
DARE-DARE forges ahead with its urban poetry/writing project. Borrowing from short form sentence structure such as slogans, haikus or tweets, these short phrases, aphorisms, poems or questions are showcased for a week's time on an illuminated sign. The texts are visible, day and night, for the thousands of passers-by that transit through the area surrounding the artist-run centre's mobile trailer.
This year we changed the formula and would like to offer this part of the program to two authors, they both will spend a short residence at the center to find their inspiration and create their 24 written formulae. These 48 proposals will constitute the set of the ongoing programming. For each of the authors, the residence will have to stretch in two stays of two weeks, spread on two seasons.
Send your proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org
