Chunky Move recognises there is a gap in the career trajectory for mid-career dance artists wishing to step into positions of artistic leadership. Currently there are very few structured opportunities for individual artists to learn the skills of company management and artistic directorship. The role of Artistic Associate is designed to bridge that gap and provide an opportunity to gain insights into running a successful dance company.
The Artistic Associate will be offered:
– Access to studio space during the residency to work on personal choreographic research;
– Mentorship by the Artistic Director, Executive Director and other staff to support and help develop artistic leadership, producing and general management skills.
– A salary of $50,000 pro rata based on a part-time contract.
