Call for proposals

Micro-residencies at la HALTE

September 27, 2021

Deadline: September 27 2021 (23H59) at

►  2 residencies of 2 days are offered. Only files sent in digital form will be considered - total file size 15 mb maximum.

DARE-DARE invites you to a brief public space research experience at HALTE (Pavilion for Reference and Reflection on Art in Public Space) in October 2021. The center's collection is made available to you to browse in any way you choose, to extract elements or combinations that are meaningful, flamboyant, contradictory, or intuitive over a two-day period in October 2021.

After a period of reflection, your residency will culminate in the creation of a reading circle activity, reinvented in light of your discoveries and research practice. We believe that creating unique links between books in a relatively spontaneous way will allow to propose unifying experiences that question our relationship to reading, archives and exchange. We are therefore looking for profiles capable of creating unique connections through our publications. You will be invited to associate culinary and/or performative elements to this activity.

DARE-DARE invites people who want to explore and experiment with new research intersections.

Our programming committee will therefore pay particular attention to applications that wish to take advantage of the unpredictable nature of a research residency in a documentation center.


Your proposal, in a form that suits you, must address all three points:

  • Explain your artistic and/or research practice
  • Explain your interest in the project
  • Attach an example of a research project you have done in the past (finalized or not)

Accepted formats: PDF documents, .mp3, .mp4 video (max. 5 minutes), max. 15 JPG images, website

The center offers:

  • An $800 fee
  • Photographic, audio or video documentation
  • Support for the coordination, dissemination and promotion


The HALTE and our collection

DARE-DARE offers a meeting space to share the center's documentary resources with a wider public as well as to offer a program of micro-projects related to writing, poetry, theorizing, reading, books and the HALTE.

The HALTE - Pavillon de référence et de réflexion sur l'art dans l'espace public wishes to promote accessibility to documentation, in order to propose a selection of documentary tools paying particular attention to public art and contextual projects. You will find a selection of publications dealing with art in public space, art and politics, action art, decolonization of the arts, architecture, design, urbanism, citizen and participative approaches, territory and more!
