Calls for submissions

Studio 303 supports emerging practices in contemporary dance and interdisciplinary performance. We give priority to emerging or in mid-career artists based in Montreal. If you are an established artist or from out of town, please specify reasons for wanting to work at Studio 303 in particular. Some of our programming is done by invitation, such as SPARK Series, exchange residencies, or other special projects. The following is our open call for submissions.

BIPOC WORKSHOP BURSARY – 2020-21 SEASON No deadline
See the call for submission and the form.
Studio 303 is offering 20+ workshop bursaries to artists who need financial assistance and who identify as Indigenous, Black, and/or as a person of colour. Bursaries will be distributed as equitably as possible, and if necessary, by lottery.

PROFESSIONAL WORKSHOPS No deadline
See the form.
We program more than one year in advance and our decisions are made around October 15th every year. We are seeking eclectic teachers – local and visiting – to facilitate workshops for professional art-makers in Montreal. These generally take place over one week (mornings only) and occasionally on weekends.

TOLLÉ – UP IS DOWN & TOUT FOUT LE CAMPS, DECEMBER 4-5-6, 2020 – 2020-21 SEASON Deadline: August 30th, 2020
See the call for submission and the form.
This year TOLLÉ explodes out of the cabaret format, while staying true to its essence: political, festive, community-building. We are looking for off-stage propositions to be shared in one way or another, with a special place in our hearts for the small and the unusual. Here are some possibilities to get you going : a treasure hunt, door-to-door serenades, augmented reality weirdness, custom objects, interactive games… We can’t wait to see what you will propose!

RESIDENCIES – 2021-22 SEASON Deadline: January 15th, 2021
See the call for submission and the form.
Summer Residency: Up to 100 hours access to the studio/equipment for artists working on collaborative or cross-disciplinary projects. The projects are selected by a committee including former artists in residence.
Winter Residency: This intensive residency is offered to two local artists, who already have a relationship with Studio 303. The residency offers exclusive and unlimited access to the studio, office and technical equipment. You must be technically autonomous.

CURATOR-IN-RESIDENCY – 2021-22 SEASON Deadline: May 15th, 2021
