Spin Arts and Dance Studio Leeds introduce ‘Artists Studio’, a research and creation space in Leeds for dance artists that reflect, support or celebrate diversity.
Funded through Arts Council England National Lottery funding, diverse artists and ideas that represent voices from across the Protected Characteristics (age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity) as well as class and socio-economic background, will be invited/selected to be in residence at the ‘Artists Studio’, situated at Dance Studio Leeds, Mabgate Mills, Leeds. This artistic focus is in response to Arts Council’s Creative Case for Diversity.
The ‘Artists Studio’ is part curated and part open invitation. Invited/selected dance artists will receive in-kind studio space, support from Spin Arts and the possibility of some financial sustenance.
