  • FRQSC Definition of Research-Creation

    The Fonds defines research/creation as research processes or

    approaches that foster creation as a continuous process. Depending on

    the practices and temporalities specific to each project, these may

    combine design, experimentation, production, and/or critical and

    theoretical analysis of the creative process. As there can be no

    research-creation without give and take between the work of art and the

    creation process by which it exists, a problematization of the artistic

    practice with the aim of producing new esthetic, theoretical,

    methodological, epistemological or technical knowledge is required by

    the Fonds.

  • FRQSC Definition of Research-Creation:

    Approach and contributions

    For the purposes of the Fonds, a research-creation approach must be based on:

    – A sustained artistic or creative practice;

    – Development of a narrative within the production of new or unpublished artworks or the implementation of

    new creation processes;

    – The transmission, presentation and dissemination of these works or creation processes to students, peers

    and the general public.

    A research-creation approach must contribute to the development of the field in

    question through the renewal of knowledge or practices, or through innovation of some

    kind. Specifically, the research-creation activities carried out under this program must

    contribute to:

    – The development of productions or works resulting from an artistic or creative practice, provided that the

    approach, process, technology, materials, form of presentation or experimentation, repertory or

    interpretative style is innovative and/or renewing;

    – Student training;

    – Greater recognition of individuals working on research-creation within their institutions and in national and

    international artistic and cultural environments and communities;

    – The enrichment of the cultural heritage of Quebec, Canada and/or the international community.
