Call for Projects / Appel à projets : Les Paradis Fiscaux / Tax Havens (ATSA)

Appel à projets

“ATSA lance cet appel aux artistes afin de construire la programmation du prochain festival sur la thématique des Paradis Fiscaux, une thématique économique qui ramène celle de La banque à bas. Écart devenu abyssal, les inégalités sont devenues la norme dans le partage des ressources et du patrimoine.

L’événement aura lieu du 16 au 19 Novembre 2017 sur la Place Émilie-Gamelin à Montréal
Thématique : Les Paradis Fiscaux – titre à venir
Toute discipline, sous chapiteau et/ou en extérieur
Date limite : Dimanche 09 avril 2017

La facture évènementielle unique inclue le grand public et les personnes itinérantes ou vivant de la précarité sociale autour d’une expérience extraordinaire commune. L’implication bénévole y est importante ainsi que celle d’entreprises multiples pour la réussite du projet. Artistiquement, il se construit autour d’une thématique et œuvre centrale des artistes Pierre Allard et Annie Roy. Autour de ce point de départ, se déploient une programmation artistique pluridisciplinaire, des activités de médiation culturelle, des conférences et rencontres, afin de faire de ce moment, un temps d’engagement, de réflexion et de rencontres qui s’appuie sur des valeurs sociales inclusives.

L’édition 2017 marquera 20 ans de persévérance à déployer cet évènement engagé.

L’ATSA lance cet appel aux artistes afin de construire la programmation du prochain festival sur la thématique des Paradis Fiscaux, une thématique économique qui ramène celle de La banque à bas. Écart devenu abyssal, les inégalités sont devenues la norme dans le partage des ressources et du patrimoine. Sous un jargon mâché et rabâché, l’économie et ses pratiques actuelles creusent le fossé des disparités. 8 hommes détiennent autant que la moitié de la planète[1].  Un concept symbolise le paroxysme de cette situation : Les paradis fiscaux. Ils permettent aux multinationales et aux grandes fortunes de se soustraire à des centaines de milliards de dollars d’impôts. Ces impôts sont essentiels pour garantir l’accès de toutes et tous à des services publics indispensables, tels la santé et l’éducation. Ils sont primordiaux dans la lutte contre les inégalités extrêmes et pourraient permettre à des millions de personnes de sortir de la pauvreté. L’intitulé doux amer rappelle combien ceux qui détiennent tout ont aussi les savoirs pour en détenir encore plus, en déplaçant les richesses du monde dans des lieux fantômes où celles-ci peuvent prospérer à l’abri du reste du monde.

L’appel est ouvert à toutes disciplines : théâtre, danse, arts visuels, arts médiatiques, performance, poésie, littérature, contes,, interdiciplinarité, nouvelles pratiques artistiques, jeux…et toutes pratiques n’ayant pas de catégories…”

Call for Projects

ATSA addresses this call for projects to artists in order to put together the programming for the next festival, whose theme will be Tax Havens—an economic theme that recalls that of La Banque à bas. The abysmal chasm of economic inequality has become the new norm in the distribution of wealth and resources. Spun in the media using a sugarcoated and belaboured jargon, today’s economic practices deepen this divide of disparity and disenfranchisement.

“The event will take place November 16 through 19, 2017 at Place Émilie-Gamelin in Montreal
Theme: Tax Havens – title to come
All disciplines, under a tent and/or outdoors
Deadline for proposals: Sunday, April 9, 2017

The one-of-a-kind event brings the general public and persons who are homeless or suffering social precarity together for an extraordinary shared experience. Volunteers play an important role in the project’s success, as do numerous businesses. Artistically, it revolves around a theme and a central work provided by artists Pierre Allard and Annie Roy. With that as a starting point, pluridisciplinary programming, cultural mediation activities, conferences and meetings are deployed to make the event an opportunity for engagement, reflection and encounters based on inclusive social values.

The 2017 edition will mark ATSA’s 20 years of perseverance in producing and staging this socially engaged event.

ATSA addresses this call for projects to artists in order to put together the programming for the next festival, whose theme will be Tax Havens—an economic theme that recalls that of La Banque à bas. The abysmal chasm of economic inequality has become the new norm in the distribution of wealth and resources. Spun in the media using a sugarcoated and belaboured jargon, today’s economic practices deepen this divide of disparity and disenfranchisement. (Consider, for instance, that just eight men own the same wealth as the poorest half of the world.[1]) One concept symbolizes this phenomenon at its worst: tax havens. Tax havens enable multinationals and the wealthy to avoid paying hundreds of billions of tax dollars. These lost revenues are essential to guaranteeing all citizens access to indispensable public services, such as health care and education; these funds are crucial if we are to eliminate extreme inequalities, and could enable millions of people to overcome poverty. Furthermore, those who already own everything also possess the knowledge they need to own even more, by moving their wealth to phantom locations where it can grow, far from the scrutiny of the rest of the world.

The call for projects is open to all disciplines: theatre, dance, visual arts, media arts, performance, poetry, literature, storytelling, interdisciplinary approaches, new artistic practices, games—as well as any practices that refuse to be pigeonholed.”
