a space grant program hosted by Gibney Dance Center
Gibney Dance is pleased to announce a call for proposals for boo-koo, an exciting new space grant and community “give back” initiative for emerging choreographers. boo-koo is slang for the French word beaucoup, and our new space grant program is based on the belief that everyone has something they need (e.g. space to create) as well as something to offer (e.g. time and talent).
Gibney Dance Center will supply artists with 40 hours of free space to develop new work. In exchange the participating artists will “give back” by designing and implementing a special project that will serve the dance or social services communities.
February 29: Application Deadline
March 1 - 15: A panel of arts and community leaders will convene to review applications
March 15: Notification
April - June: Space Grant Period – 40 hours of space awarded.
April 28: Deadline for Community Project “Giveback” Proposal Concept
June 30: Deadline for Community Project “Giveback” Project Completion
boo-koo grantees will receive 40 hours of space to be used within a three-month period. As necessary, space grant recipients will be provided with informal direction and technical assistance in developing their “give back” projects.
To apply for a boo-koo space grant, please submit the following materials:
- Two Unedited Work Sample DVDs, each clearly labeled and cued to 5-minute excerpts (no promotional videos please!)
- A Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope if you would like your application materials returned.
