The purpose of this fund
The purpose of the dance artist residency scheme is to stabilise and support a network of dance artists in residence across the country. The specific contents of the work programme will be designed by the dance artist in collaboration with the venue and local authority.
The aims of this scheme are:
- to consolidate both professional and community-based dance practice in a variety of regional contexts;
- to offer opportunities to dance artists around the country to engage in a programme of artistic work relevant to their own practise;
- to offer opportunities to local authorities and venues to develop dance practise in their area
- to encourage the development of long-term planning and sustainability of independent dance activities.
Professional dance artists, venues or local authorities can apply for this scheme. Applications must demonstrate the committed support of at least one local authority and one venue or combination of local authorities and venues.
