Artistic Development and Outreach

Dance Victoria’s (DV) proposal call is now open for its annual Artist Residency Program. Independent dance artists and collectives residing in B.C. and interested in a creative residency during the 2023/24 season can apply. The Artist Residency Program includes access to DV’s newly-upgraded Quadra Village studios, mentorship, and a direct financial contribution. Dance Victoria’s goal is to enable choreographers from a diversity of backgrounds, experience levels (emerging to established), and disciplines to develop their artistic vision through research/exploration, creation, outreach, and performance. 

Dance Victoria has a long history of support for the development of new work through its creative residency program. Residencies take all shapes and forms dependent on artist needs and available resources.
