The window for accepting applications for the New Dance Company Call for Proposals will open on the 27 June, with a closing date of 29 July at 5.30pm.
The objectives and priorities of this initiative are to establish a new, independent, flagship dance company committed to commissioning dance production across all scales and to the employment of dancers, as well as national, North/South and international touring.
The new company will promote the celebration of the art of dance as one of the island of Ireland’s great contemporary strengths and assets. Equality, diversity and inclusivity will be embedded throughout the company and its work.
This is an initiative of the Arts Council of Ireland, and an outcome of the Arts Council’s dance policy, Advancing Dance 2022–2025. It is our ambition that the successful proposal will undertake activities that are realised on an all-island basis. In order to support this approach, it is expected that this company will seek to collaborate with Arts Council Northern Ireland and other Northern Ireland funding agencies.
Guidelines for this process can be found here.
