Salon58 is a cultural space located in Marsoui (Gaspésie), which focuses on artistic experimentation, multidisciplinarity and proximity to the public, encouraging encounters on a human scale. Produced by Mandoline Hybride, since 2018 the project has hosted artists in residence, intimate concerts and screenings under the stars, as well as various cultural activities. To find out more about the program and the location: mandolinehybride.com/salon58.
Salon58 artistic residencies are shared residencies. The artists are accommodated in individual rooms with their own work desk, while sharing the common spaces during the week (boudoir, living room/piano/movement space, workshop, kitchen). It will therefore be possible to exchange with one or two other artists in residence at the same time. Salon58 lends itself more to thinking, writing, solo movement work and building small set pieces. Access to a large dance studio can be discussed according to the needs of the artist. The place is not equipped to work on lighting, large scenographies, heavy carpentry work, etc. High speed internet is available at Salon58 and is very efficient. However, note that there is no cellular network on site. It takes 5 minutes by car to get the network.
