ARTIST RESIDENCY IN THE TROPICS (A.R.T.)
DANCENORTH ARE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2019 A.R.T. DANCE RESIDENCY.
Dancenorth’s A.R.T. program, generously supported through the Ian Potter Foundation, offers art 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.
The A.R.T. dance residency will offer an independent dance practitioner the opportunity to utilise a Dancenorth studio space for a minimum of two weeks and up to three weeks to undertake a dance related project. A bursary of $4,000 will be provided and basic technical support throughout this period.
This residency will also provide an invaluable mentoring opportunity, connecting the practitioners with exposure to Dancenorth Artistic Director Kyle Page, Associate Artistic Director Amber Haines and Executive Director Hillary Coyne, to enable and facilitate a sharing of knowledge and creative vison, whilst also creating a reciprocal exchange.
The 2019 residency will run for a minimum of two weeks and up to three-weeks. Residency dates will be negotiated with the successful applicant, based on studio availability.
VENUE: Dancenorth - Corner of Stanley and Walker Streets, Townsville, QLD 4810.

$4000 bursary from which you can book your own flights and accommodation, and contribute towards any other expenses associated with your residency project.
