Co-Production Proposals

In response to the inspiring growth of contemporary dance in Guelph, Guelph Dance is offering a community-based initiative: a chance for local, professional dance artists to create their own Festival event! Artists are encouraged to dream, scheme, and create innovative and cutting-edge ways to perform dance in Guelph.

Call for Proposals 2015

Submissions for the 2015 Guelph Dance Festival will be accepted until September 15, 2014. See below for submission details. Note that paperless submission is preferred. Be sure to email the completed application, a Youtube or Vimeo link to the video, and membership payment via PayPal to [email protected] by the deadline. Mailed applications are still accepted.

Local Initiatives Program Details

  • This program will be presented during the 17th Guelph Dance Festival, June 4-7, 2014.
  • Artists will have complete freedom to present their site-specific dance ideas in any way they choose—the only limitation will be the artist’s imagination.
  • Guelph Dance will provide our Festival infrastructure, staffing, and promotion to support the artist’s ideas, along with an artist fee and production costs.
  • Although performing artists do not have to be local, local contemporary dance artists will be given preference.
  • This event will be curated by committee.

Visit the Submissions page for the application and its requirements.

Only complete submission packages will be considered.
