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, SPARK Series, exchange residencies, or other special projects. The following is our open call for submissions.

CABARET TOLLÉ 2019 Deadline: August 15th, 2019
See the call for submission and the form.
For our 30th birthday, Cabaret Tollé is relocated home at Studio 303 to explore this year’s playful theme: “Eternal Saturnalia”. The Roman festival Saturnalia featured wild revelry and subversive role reversals. Together let’s imagine a never-ending, joyful celebration of big shifts and new social orders!

RESIDENCIES 2020-21 Deadline: January 15th, 2020
Call for submission to come.
Summer Residency: Up to 100 hours access to the studio/equipment for artists working on collaborative or cross-disciplinary projects. 3-5 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.

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.

CURATOR-IN-RESIDENCY Deadline: June 20th, 2020

To contribute to the development of the practice of performance curation, Studio 303 is pursuing its Curator-in-Residence program for a second year. Think, devise, express. What sort of a shared program would you like to curate at Studio 303?
