The mission of Rencontres internationales de la photographie en Gaspésie is to introduce people to photographic creation in all its forms and to impart a knowledge of it, through an approach that fosters encounters between artistic creation and the public.
Rencontres seeks to convey the work of professional photographers (recognized and emerging) by way of an original and diversified programming through exhibits, artist residencies,* projections, performances and other activities.
The objective of Rencontres is to carry out truly substantive work in the areas of dissemination and artistic education. We are deeply committed to the belief that encounters and exchanges between the public and artists are conducive, in the long term, to a deeper understanding of artistic approaches and, as a result, of photography. Rencontres is a foundation that makes it possible to conduct a cultural activity the rest of the year, one in which the photograph is the leitmotiv.
*A residency furthers the welcome of an artist in Gaspé territory. Rencontres offers supervision and services designed to make his or her stay easier. The residency allows for reflection and for research in the territory.
