Creative art opportunity for dancers and writers
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.
