Call for participants 2022

The summer laboratories of NSL are back for 2022!

In an effort to keep supporting the development of artistic voices, this year we will gather in studios provided by l’UQAM and La Maison pour la danse de Quebec. NSL invites participants to create, share, and experiment with other artists through creation groups and weekly activities.

The labs run in Quebec City from July 18th to 22nd and in Montreal from July 25th to August 5th, 2022.

Participate -

To join the explorations, you are invited to meet with one of our organizers to talk about art, creativity and movement. We want to know what inspires you, motivates you, excites you or scares you. It is through these conversations that we are able to bring together small, fertile and cohesive teams of artists around shared interests.

Whether you want to instigate an exploration, or encounter a process as a performer, dramaturge or other collaborator, we are here to listen!

There will be two components to the labs this year:

  1. Creation groups: a steady group of participants that explores a creative idea together in studio, led by an instigator, or group leader. Groups will be determined by lab organizers before the lab begins, based on participants’ common interests.

  2. Activities: weekly events open to all lab participants, including drop-ins, ranging from workshops, to discussions, to bike rides and picnics!

To arrange a meeting, fill the GOOGLE FORM before May 23rd.

Meetings with participating artists take place from May 1st to May 31st, 2022 inclusively.

The cost of participation will be announced shortly. Filling out the google form does not commit you to anything.
