Dance Collection Danse Artist Researcher-in-Residence Pilot Project

Have you ever considered using history and archival sources as a point of
inspiration for new choreographic work?

Dance Collection Danse is pleased to offer a pilot project for an Artist Researcher-in-Residence. The artist will be provided with research support from DCD staff and will be able to spend as much time as they wish conducting research at Dance Collection Danse or digitally through DCD Discover. The artist will give an informal presentation at the end of their residency to share their research and discuss how they see the research fitting into new creative work (this presentation may be offered digitally or in a hybrid digital/in-person format). DCD welcomes applications from artists at any stage of their professional career and from any form of dance practice.

  • Includes artist fee of $2500
  • Residency begins March 1, 2022 and lasts for up to one year
  • Applications due by February 1

Please send your CV and a 500-word statement about your research interests to info@dcd.ca.

Please note, as this is a pilot version of the residency, for this initial year, DCD is not able to provide travel, accommodation or per diem expenses; however, we can supply a letter of support for travel funding applications. It is also possible to conduct the residency digitally so artists can participate from anywhere in Canada.

For questions or more information, contact info@dcd.ca or 416-365-3233. Answering service is checked daily while our office presence is still minimal.
