Call for Dance Researches NRW 2019


The NRW KULTURsekretariat offers a total of four residences lasting several weeks for topic-related, production-independent research in the period April to December 2019.

Two scholarships are aimed at dance artists from abroad for a research stay in one of the 21 member cities of the NRWKS. The focus is on cultural, political, social or scientific aspects. NRW as a state of cities offers numerous and varied opportunities for this.

Two more scholarships will be granted to dance artists with their main focus of life and work in one of the NRWKS member cities, in order to carry out research in specific locations or on specific occasions abroad.

We offer up to 6,000 euros depending on the type and scope of the research, as well as personal support, moderation and mediation with institutions and experts.

Submissions including a description of the research project, references and CV will only be accepted digitally using the appropriate application form.

The closing date for application is Monday, 18 February 2019.
