New Dance Award announced

Janice Parker Projects are delighted to announce their new Dance Artist Development Bursary in partnership with The Saltire Society.

 As part of The Saltire Society’s ‘Inspiring Scotland” programme and 80th Anniversary celebrations, Janice Parker Projects are thrilled to be offering, for the first time, a Dance Artist Development Bursary to support an emerging artist who puts people, place and collaboration at the centre of their work. The bursary recipient will be awarded £2,500, enabling them to undertake a project over the course of a year. In addition, the artist will be offered a one-year membership to the Saltire Society and regular support from Janice Parker Projects.

Janice Parker Projects are known for their passion for and commitment to diversity in dance. They want to work with dance artists who are different, who are inspired by people, place and collaboration, to put forward proposals on how they would use this bursary to develop their practice and contribute to the current and future ecology of dance. The artist will have the opportunity to develop a project of their own in response to this call out, with support from Janice Parker Projects over the course of the year. The award will be made to an emerging dance artist, of any age, who offers an imaginative and searching enquiry and can demonstrate how the award and working with Janice Parker Projects can benefit their artistic development.
