The BBC Performing Arts Fund Fellowship, offered in collaboration with South East Dance, is now open for applications from individuals (artists, producers, and others working in the creative sector) who are at the early stages of their career, or at a point of transition in their career, and who want to create or present work that 'embraces movement and the choreographic'.
The Fellowship organisers would like to work with 'someone that is investigating new approaches to creating and presenting dance, focused on trying out new methods of working or the placement of work in new / non-conventional contexts', and are open to applications from the circus field so long as the applicant's work can be articulated within the frame of choreographic practice.
The selected Fellow will receive a tailored programme of support developed within an £8000 budget. The budget can include expenses such as travel, per diems, the cost of training courses, workshops, masterclasses, equipment hire, the cost of producing creative work, professional fees including the costs of other individuals contributing to the Fellowship, and so on, but the Fellowship money cannot be used as a commission or as match funding for a production already in development. Established artists are not eligible for the Fund – it's intended only for those whose careers would receive a significant boost from the offered support.
