£120,000 research fund open to artists and creatives across all artforms
A National Dance Network initiative, supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation and delivered by DanceXchange.

The Jerwood Choreographic Research Project (JCRP) is an innovative new investment model for open-ended research in choreographic practice open to artists and creatives across all art forms.

Bringing together a range of investors from across the cultural sector along with funding from The Jerwood Charitable Foundation to create an investment pot of over £120,000, the project is now seeking research proposals from artists and creatives from any artform who consider their work to be choreographic.

We anticipate that the average amount given to a successful pitch will be £10k and that approximately 12 projects will be supported from a shortlist of no more than 30. In exceptional circumstances, however, DanceXchange reserves the right to support a smaller number of projects or for all of the funds to be allocated to one project.

Application Process:
There is a two-part application process:
– A short written application. Deadline Monday 29 July 2013, 6pm
– A pitch by shortlisted artists on Wednesday 25 September 2013
– Successful artists will deliver their research project by the end of December 2014.
