Networking lies at the heart of Rencontres activities. Through it, our aim is to set up creation and exhibition platforms serving artists and contemporary creativity. It is in that perspective that we collaborate with France and that we are currently laying the groundwork for future collaborations with other countries.
Rencontres internationales de la photographie en Gaspésie and Diaphane – Pôle photographique en Picardie share an eagerness to carry out truly substantive work in their respective territories aimed at raising awareness of photography and increasing its exposure. The two events have pledged jointly to showcase artists’ work and the various artistic practices surrounding the photograph.
A collaboration between Rencontres internationales de la photographie en Gaspésie and the Conseil Général de la Vendée, France, allows photographers from Québec and France to do research and creative residencies in Vendée or in the Gaspé, and then exhibit their work there.
