Open Call for dance artists: CROWD 2021

The Goethe-Institut London, together with several international partner organisations, calls for dance artists to apply for the 2021 dance residency programme.

The Goethe-Institut London calls for dance artists from across the Netherlands, Finland, North Rhine-Westphalia (DE) and the UK to apply for the 2021 dance residency programme, CROWD International Dance Exchange. CROWD is a programme developed together with European partners in a time when international sharing and human togetherness is needed more than ever.

It aims to support dance artists with an established practice in community-engaged dance-making to build their professional network, exchange with others in the field and develop their practice while generating new knowledge in the area of community engagement in dance. Participants will benefit from 6 weeks of national and international residency time in the second half of 2021, close collaboration with 2 other international artists, the network of 5 artists and 6 international dance organisations. The organisers are looking for dance artists with a collaborative outlook, interested in how non-professionals can feed creative practice in different contexts, as well as how communities can benefit from engaging with dance and creative projects. Each artist will attend residencies in three of the attending cities (Oulu, Finland; Rotterdam, The Netherlands; Nottingham, United-Kingdom; Cologne/Münster, Germany).

Alongside the residencies, the partners will host a series of digital sessions exploring the artists’ research in greater detail, allowing those participating to disseminate their learnings and have feedback or input from other experts working in the field. Research documentation will be collected throughout and shared within the networks of the partners, encouraging international dialogue.

Application & information

The deadline for applications is 21 February 2021. The residencies take place somewhere between July and November 2021. More information about the programme and application can be found here.
