The opportunity will include supporting artists with:

  • Studio / residency time (up to 4 weeks)
  • co-commissioning fee of £500
  • on-going advice & producing support by Yorkshire Dance’s Artist Development Producer
  • 2 intensive professional development workshop periods offering new artistic tools to be adapted in the research, development & feedback of work with experts in the field (ie. dramaturgy, choreography)
