Call for applications to Creative New Zealand Choreographic Fellowship 2005
Creative New Zealand is calling for applications from senior choreographers to the Creative New Zealand Choreographic Fellowship 2005. Worth $65,000, this fellowship is the largest fellowship or award available to choreographers in New Zealand.
The fellowship, awarded to those who have already produced a significant body of work, supports choreographers to develop new practices, undertake specific research, or deepen their skill or knowledge base.
The recipient will be required to complete a project involving creative work and/or professional development within a 12-month period.
Last year, the Creative New Zealand Choreographic Fellowship was awarded to internationally acclaimed New Zealand choreographer Douglas Wright.
When he was awarded the 2004 Fellowship, Wright said that he relished the opportunity to further his practice. “It’s wonderful to have the financial support so that I can work with dancers, my designer Michael Pearce and composer David Long. It’s also a luxury to have unpressured time in my studio to explore ideas, take risks, and experiment with language and movement.”
The deadline for applications to the Creative New Zealand Choreographic Fellowship 2005 is 5pm, Thursday 30 June 2005.
For guidelines and more information please contact Helaina Keeley (Tel: 04-498 0702 Email: helainak@creativenz.govt.nz). You can also download the guidelines from the Resources section of Creative New Zealand’s website (www.creativenz.govt.nz).
