Stipend programme for freelance creative-dance artists

The stipend-style funding programme provides resources for creative-dance projects involving organisation, documentation and archiving activities (e.g. of props, sets, programmes and videos), research, further training and the development of works, undertakings and projects, and which in addition cover some of the less visible areas of artistic practice. Funding can thus be provided for projects that enable artists to reflect on and adapt their own working methods, expand their knowledge and formulate new ways of working. Projects can also be used as a way of entering and trying out new fields as well as learning new methods and theories.


Who can apply?
Choreographers, dancers, curators, dramatic advisors, producers, dance-transfer specialists, costume designers, lighting designers, technicians, dance journalists and anyone engaged professionally in artistic processes. Applicants need to have a residence in Germany. 

What can be applied for?
The programme awards project funding for creative dance artists wishing e.g. to document or archive their own work (incl. props, sets, programmes, videos, etc.) and reflect on their own working methods, expand their knowledge, try out new fields and become familiar with or learn new methods or theories.

What amounts can be applied for?
A minimum of €4,500 to a maximum of €12,000 for a minimum 3 to a maximum 8 months
