happynest #8 2024-2025

happynest is a professionalizing platform which supports the emerging artists in the Hauts-de-France region. It is an initiative of the SUPERAMAS collective. Each season, happynest will offer artistic, administrative, technical and production support to selected projects originated by young artists.

happynest supports emerging artists active in the field of performing arts, through a programme based on advices and mentoring in:

  • artistic practices: concept, dramaturgy, physical performance, research, etc.

  • administration: budget and/or grant application preparation, etc.

  • production: places of rehearsals, showings, technical advices, etc.

happynest will propose, in cooperation with the selected artists, a "tailor-made support program", based on its network of partners (variable throughout time of the year and seasons) and on a production budget.

At the beginning of each year, an open call for projects is launched through the media in the Hauts-de-France region. In general, the deadline for applications is around end of January. The results of the selection are available by the end of first quarter of the year.
