The pépinières européennes pour jeunes artistes is a cultural organization that support young artists who work on new forms of expression and transdisciplinary projects. They promote the mobility of the artists on a European level with in a network of partners in 31 countries.
PRIM is open to all creative individuals, independent artists and professional producers who wish to use its resources for artistic, community or research purposes. As an artist-run centre, PRIM's mandate is to provide training through its educational programs and support the production of media works through grants and co-productions. Open to all artistic and cultural communities, PRIM is a human and technical resource centre committed to supporting the creation and development of media works. PRIM is committed to providing artists with professional-level training and maintaining the quality of independent productions. Since being founded in 1981, PRIM has resolutely championed the cause of independent artists. Its mission is to grant them full creative freedom while allowing them to maintain complete editorial and creative control over their work, under the best possible conditions.
Every three years, PRIM hosts two European media artists for four months. The artists enjoy full access to PRIM’s technical services and can also attend classes.
Closely linked to current-day artistic practices, the program targets artists aged 20 to 35 working in any discipline that explores emerging practices (i.e. that juxtapose the visual arts with other forms of expression). Designed to support the artists prior to and following their residencies, the program fosters creative diversity, layered experience, cross-disciplinary work and mutual enrichment.
