Artist-in-Residence : The Research Series

What is the Research Series? An artist residency is designed to support dance and movement-based artists by providing resources towards the research phase of the creative process. Resources offered include: space, equipment, artistic and administrative support, presentations, and a financial contribution. The residency can be tailored to the specific needs of the artist to best support the research. The purpose of the series is to allow for in-depth research, critical thinking, risk-taking, experimentation, collaboration, process sharing and well…play. Artists are encouraged to make bold choices, push the boundaries and further the practice of dance.

Three months are allotted for the research period. Schedules within that are flexible and Young Lungs would accommodate as much as possible. Artists are expected to be in Winnipeg during the residency but applicants can apply from outside Winnipeg. Residencies can be anywhere from 40-60 hours of studio time. It is preferred that artists plan their budget with consideration of maintaining a professional artist fee of $25/hour. Beyond the residency, artists-in-residence become a part of Young Lungs’ network of artists that get considered for support activities, events, and future promotion opportunities.

Submissions will be peer-reviewed and selected by a jury consisting of a dance artist, an artist from another discipline and a board member.
