FLACC is a workplace for visual artists and creates the conceptual, organisational and technical conditions for realising unique artist projects.

FLACC has metal and woodworking workshops, a digital studio, and a foundry with a furnace and kilns for ceramics, bronze and glass applications, and an extensive workspace. The staff is knowledgeable about the production possibilities of nearby workplaces and collaborates with those workplaces and with schools and companies to give the artists the best possible support and assistance.

By investing in ‘in situ’ projects within vacant or abandoned industrial buildings, QE attempts to explore our urban zones and to reach a diverse public. Quartier Ephémère runs an International Residency Programme, a France-Québec Exchange Programme and a new residency programme for curators of the Americas. The Canada Council for the Arts is offering an international residency program at the Darling Foundry for foreign professional visual artists from outside of Canada.
