2022 Research Series – Artist-in-Residence
Call for Submissions
Research Series Runs February-April 2022
The Research Series is a residency program designed to support the kinesthetic and choreographic inquiries of artists from all disciplines engaging in dance and/or movement-based research by providing resources such as artists fees, studio space, and public presentation and discussion 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, without the pressure of a finished work or conclusion.
Two (2) artists or artistic teams will be selected to participate in the 2022 Research Series via the following application process. No less than one (1) of these teams will be Manitoban-led, and up to one (1) of these teams will be out-of-town-led. The Residency will take place in Winnipeg, MB. We encourage applicants from local and national contexts to apply. *YLDE is happy to provide letters of support for selected out of town artist(s) seeking additional funding to cover travel and living costs while in residence.
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 two (2) 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.
