CROWD is a dance residency programme developed together with European partners in a time when international sharing and human togetherness is needed more than ever. It aims to support dance artists with an established practice in community engaged dance making.
Through a series of residencies in Germany, Finland, the Netherlands and the UK, participating artists will have the opportunity to extend their professional network, work alongside peers to exchange and develop their individual and collective practice, whilst generating new knowledge in the area of community engagement in dance.
The programme provides:
- 6 weeks of national and international residency time in the second half of 2021.
- A fee and per diems.
- Collaboration with two international artists.
- Network with five artists and six international dance organisations.
- Travel and accommodation during residency periods.
- Access and caring responsibility bursaries available.
The call is open to dance artists with demonstrable experience in engaging with community members in the ideation, creation or performance of their work. Applicants should come with an excitement and willingness to collaborate and share knowledge internationally, between artists and institutions. Participants must be based in the UK, North Rhine-Westphalia, the Netherlands or Finland and will need to be able to work in both the UK and the EU. The organisers will support with obtaining visas (where required). The working language across the programme will be English so a reasonable knowledge is required. Artists are to take care of their own insurances (health, travel, etc.).
