CALL FOR PROPOSAL – 2024-2025 season

Creative research residencies for professional puppeteers from the Island of Montréal


With the goal of developing puppetry, Casteliers and the Conseil des arts de Montréal (CAM) are partnering, in collaboration with Le Schatz, to offer two (2) creative residencies for professional puppeteers.


The residencies will each last for seventeen (17) days. They will take place in two stages: twelve days (12) at the Maison internationale des arts de la marionnette (MIAM) and five (5) days at Le Schatz in Sutton.


These residencies must be held at the MIAM during one of the following three periods: from December 2 to 13, 2024, January 13 to 24, 2025, or April 28 to May 9, 2025 and at the Le Schatz House in the months of October or November 2024, or March or April 2025.


The residencies were developed on the following objectives:

  • Offer puppeteers in residence time to work and rehearse on a show in progress, whether they are at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of their process;
  • Give access to MIAM’s specialized spaces, equipment and resources;
  • Provide access to a creative space located in the heart of nature, Le Schatz;
  • Support the creation of works by the Montréal puppetry community.

One of the two residencies will be reserved for an artist project from a priority group identified by the CAM.


Deadline for applications: June 10, 2024, before midnight
