Through the Dance Connect project, Bristol Dance Futures, are pleased to announce the open call for four £8,000 residencies for dance practitioners.

The residencies will embed a Bristol based artist in a cultural, health, education or public 'setting' in order to create opportunities to get to know how these settings operate and, understand how creative practice can take place within the organisations priorities. Further to this artists are encouraged to find out how these spaces could understand more about the potential of dance.

On 24 Sept 2020 organisations and artists are invited to join a Zoom meeting to find out more about the opportunity including:

  • Hear about experiences of artists who have co-designed residencies within both arts and non- arts based settings
  • Hear from organisations who have hosted an artist residency
  • Hear about the interests of other artists and organisation
  • Explore synergies between what artists would like to do and what organisations would like to host Artists and organisations will have an opportunity to discuss their values, interests and the focus of their work, with the aim of forming partnerships between independent artists and venues/organisations.

Following the meeting there will be a call out to artists and organisations to submit a joint application for a residency idea to be part of the Dance Connect project by October 30th 2020.
