Important to know for professional artists
2016 will be the 10th edition.
Always the week which follows the Thanksgiving, from Wednesday including Sunday; the event proceeds over 5 days.
From October 12th to October 16th for 2016.
Sunday from 11 am, however people come starting Wednesday in order to attend the creative process.
The City of Mont- Saint-Hilaire is the promoter of this project since the beginning in 2007 with the collaboration of the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec as well as the TD bank. Several other silent partners joined the project since. The success of the event is due to our professional, dynamic, convivial, impassioned team.
The place where the event occurs is quite simply bucolic, it 's the orchard of Mr. Michel Robert, "Le Pavillon de la pomme", located at the bottom of the Mountain of Mont-Saint-Hilaire, imagine the place in autumn time. There are also a pine forest and another forest of hemlock spruces which are parts of this splendid playing field.
Approximately 6000 people passed last year and growing each year. Mont Saint-Hilaire is 45 minutes from Montreal and two hours from Quebec.
How many artists
Twelve teams participate each year, and since 2010 we receive international artists.
Conditions for creating in the spirit of the Land art
The artists must create a work in the spirit of the Land art, using as much as possible what is on the spot, there is however a 10% of resources allowed from elsewhere.
The theme of this year 2016
"Let's be realistic and create the impossible!"
It's our theme for the last tree year and we don't get rid of it. That opens all doors, and even that of the impossible . This topic suggests daring, innovating, exceeding its limits, leaving its zone of comfort.
