Young Lungs Dance Exchange: The Research Series, Submission Deadline November 29

DEADLINE TO APPLY IS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 29

Dates: The Research Series runs January-March, 2021

WHAT IS THE RESEARCH SERIES?

A residency program designed to support the creative processes of artists from all disciplines engaging in dance and/or movement-based research by providing resources such as artists fees, rehearsal space, and public presentation opportunities. The purpose of the residency is to allow for in-depth research, critical thinking, risk-taking, professional development, skill enhancement and an exchange of ideas.

Four (4) artists or artistic teams will be selected to participate in the 2021 Research Series via this application process. No less than two (2) of these teams will be Manitoban-led, and up to two (2) of these teams will be out-of-town-led. We encourage applicants from local, national, and international contexts with access to wifi to apply.

Young Lungs Dance Exchange (YLDE) is committed to the principle of equitable access and strives for a fair, cooperative, respectful, and safe environment that protects and promotes human rights and affirms the dignity of all persons. A minimum of one (1) Black, Indigenous, or artist of colour (or artistic team-lead) will be selected of the four (4) projects. We encourage you to self-identify.

YLDE has funds set aside to support a portion of accessibility-related costs. We are happy to work together with artists to secure the appropriate and necessary budgeting requirements.

Applications will be reviewed and chosen by a selection committee.
