Cre­ative art op­por­tu­nity for dancers and writ­ers

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Maori dancers and writ­ers have an op­por­tu­nity to de­velop their arts prac­tice at one of the world’s largest cre­ativ­ity in­cu­ba­tors.

Over the next two years, Canada’s Banff Cen­tre will re­serve one spot for a con­tem­po­rary Maori artist in each of their indige­nous dance and writ­ing res­i­dency pro­grammes.

Funded by Cre­ative New Zealand, the selected artists will share the ex­pe­ri­ence with other indige­nous artists from var­i­ous na­tions.

The Indige­nous Dance Res­i­dency is a four-week in­ten­sive pro­gramme which in­volves daily classes as well as cre­at­ing a new chore­o­graphic work that will be per­formed at the Banff Sum­mer Arts Fes­ti­val.

The Indige­nous Wri- ting Pro­gramme is two weeks of writ­ing time at the Banff Cen­tre and 10 weeks of work­ing on­line from home or work space with a men­tor.
