Leeds Dance Partnership Artist Fellowship

Following our successful Ambition for Excellence grant from Arts Council England, Leeds Dance Partnership is delighted to announce the launch of our Artist Fellowship scheme which links independent artists with major cultural organisations for mutual learning and the creation of new research, performance or other relevant content.

We are offering four opportunities to adventurous and innovative dance artists to undertake fellowships with Leeds Beckett University, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Phoenix Dance Theatre and Yorkshire Dance.

The fellowships provide opportunity for all sectors of society, particularly women and people from a BAME background. This is the first of many opportunities for independent artists that will be announced over the coming 18 months.

Each host organisation has presented a challenging brief, specifying their current points of interests and available resources to support the fellow. Applicants are invited to choose and respond to the brief they feel best complements their practice and development goals. The fellowship is designed to offer a bespoke experience, so artists can decide in conversation with their host organisation how their fellowship can best fit around other commitments within the nine-month period.

As part of your fellowship you will share your learning publicly in a way that you chose – through performance, exhibition, hosting a discussion, digitally or through another mechanism. This is a unique and exciting opportunity to work flexibly with a world-class organisation and to explore new ideas, away from the pressures of production.

Deadline for applicatios 12noon on Wednesday, 28 November 2018

  • Phoenix Dance – Wednesday 5 December 2018
  • Yorkshire Dance – Friday 14 December 2018
