Artist Fellowships

Leeds Dance Partnership offers support for independent artists through its Artist Fellowship scheme. As part of the scheme artists work with a host organisation in response to a creative brief, developing strong relationship between independent artists and major organisations in Leeds. The artists receive a fee, a training budgets for their own development and support throughout their fellowship from both their host organisation and other partners.

The incredible artists in our 2019 Fellowship are:

  • Vanessa Grasse – Artist Fellow at Leeds Beckett University
  • Hannah Buckley – Artist Fellow at Northern School of Contemporary Dance
  • Jamaal Burkmar – Artist Fellow at Phoenix Dance Theatre 
  • Lucy Suggate – Artist Fellow at Yorkshire Dance 

At the end of the fellowship, the artists and organisations will share their learnings or created works at an event open to the public and industry guests.
