DANCENORTH A.R.T. PROGRAM 2018 - DANCE RESIDENCIES X2

In 2018 Dancenorth is continuing its commitment to increasing support within the sector,  through its Artist Residency in the Tropics (A.R.T.) Program. There are two A.R.T. Dance Residency opportunities available for 2018, which will run for two weeks at a time.

Dancenorth’s A.R.T. program offers independent dance practitioners the opportunity to live and work in the pristine environs of Tropical North Queensland – a landscape thoroughly conducive to creativity.  A.R.T. residents are afforded time and space away from the familiarity of their usual surroundings, enabling not only space for reflection, research and development, but entirely new experiences from which to draw creative inspiration. 

WHAT A.R.T. OFFERS:

·         $5000 bursary from which you can book your own flights and accommodation, and contribute towards any other expenses associated with your residency project.

·         Full-time access to Dancenorth’s upstairs studio (working around the existing open class program offered mostly in the evenings)

·         The opportunity to participate in Company class each morning

·       Dancenorth provides basic support and equipment whilst encouraging autonomy and spontaneity. 

·         Basic tech support

·         The opportunity to be mentored by both the Artistic Director and Executive Director of Dancenorth, creating a reciprocal exchange.

This initiative has no presentation outcome requirements, but artists are encouraged to present their explorations at an informal showing for the Company and invited guests, in order to access feedback and prompt critical discussion.

 

RESIDENCY DATES:

Option 1: 4/06 – 15/06

or

Option 2: 6/08 – 17/08

VENUE: Dancenorth- Corner of Stanley and Walker Streets, Townsville, QLD 4810.

 

APPLICATIONS FOR THE A.R.T. DANCE RESIDENCIES HAVE NOW CLOSED. PLEASE KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THE NEXT ROUND OF RESIDENCY OPPORTUNITIES LATER IN THE YEAR.

For the first time, Dancenorth is expanding its Artist Residency in the Tropics (A.R.T.) Program to offer opportunities to arts companies, community groups and individual artists seeking support for an arts-related project. This inaugural Individual Artist/Arts Company/Community Group Residency will offer the opportunity to utilise a Dancenorth studio space for 2 weeks to undertake a project across any artform (e.g. for development of new work, or delivery of a community-based project). A bursary of $3000 will be provided and basic technical support, thanks to support from the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund.

ELIGABILITY CRITERIA:

·         The applicant must be a Queensland-based independent artist, arts company or community group needing support for an arts-related project

·         Your project cannot involve the use of wet paint, glitter, ash, foam balls (e.g. bean bag filler) or live flame.

 

RESIDENCY DATES: 16 April – 27 April 2018.
