Applications are now open for The Healthy Dancer Canada BIPOC Emerging Artist Scholarship! An initiative created to support emerging BIPOC artists pursuing careers in dance, this scholarship aims to address existing barriers faced by BIPOC artists, and improve access to supports that will further racialized artists in their professional pursuits.
This opportunity is open to BIPOC artists ages 18-30 who self-identify as emerging/early-stage professional dance artists in any and all genres. Both independent submissions (applying for yourself) and nominations (on behalf of another qualifying artist) will be accepted.
Applicants may also express interest in HDC’s Mentorship Program, which will pair the emerging artist with an established dance professional in a mentoring relationship for approximately six months. The Mentorship Program aspires to offer further professional advice, guidance, resources, and emotional/social support to BIPOC artists in the early stages of their dance career.
See the print document to learn more and to complete the BIPOC Emerging Artist Scholarship application. Submissions are due by May 1st, 2023.
