Elaine Kordys Elaine Kordys - Artist Research Bursary
Elaine Kordys is undertaking a remote research process supported by an Artist Research Bursary
Elaine says: "This bursary will be used to research creative ageing and dementia care interventions through the practice of Dance and ScreenDance. It will also give time to explore a new collaboration between myself, film maker Katrina Brown and artist Vicki Fleck. Overall it will inform new directions and avenues supporting me to navigate the changing landscape and re-shape my work."
The Artist Research Bursaries are a new strand of support introduced by The Work Room in response to the ongoing and precarious position of freelance dance artists during the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly artist members who currently experience barriers to returning to studio practice. The bursary awards support members with flexible, remote research time to sustain and deepen their artistic practice in these uncertain times. The support is offered without a required outcome although The Work Room will support members to share or disseminate research where appropriate.
