At the heart of The Work Room is our programme of supported, choreographic residencies. This programme supports experimentation and the creative processes, from research through to production, according to the needs and requirements of each resident artist. Residencies come with financial support which is key to delivering on our commitment to creating a sustainable environment for independent dance artists in Scotland.
This the largest strand of our programme, with the studio filled by member activity for up to 50 weeks each year. Residency time is highly sought after and scheduled artists are selected through an application process with two call outs annually. As an artists-led organisation, the selection process is peer-assessed with decisions taken by a working group of members.
The Work Room seeks to foster a community of artists and we encourage all our resident to consider how they will share the findings of their residency time with our wider membership.
