Abstract
Residencies for Dance Artists Living with Spinal Cord Injury

DESCRIPTION
Dance/NYC proposes a residency project to expand opportunities for dance artists living with spinal cord injury (SCI) and to advance accessibility and inclusion within the larger dance residency community.

The organization would partner with Gibney and Spaceworks, dance centers in New York City, to create and implement an application and panel review process to identify approximately six (6) program participants, comprised of individual dance artists and/or dance ensembles working with artists with SCI. Each participant would receive:
1. Honorarium of $5,000
2. Additional stipend of up to $1,000 for personal care assistant(s) if necessary
3. Up to 60 hours of rehearsal time at one partnering center
4. 10-dance class card for up to three (3) artists per participant
5. Administrative office space, desk in an open office space
6. If desired, private or public studio showing, open rehearsal, and/or public talk
7. In-kind marketing, communications, and outreach for participants of up to five (5) weeks through Dance/NYC platforms

Each of the two (2) partnering dance centers would receive:
1. “Beyond Accessibility” training to improve practices
2. At least two (2) meetings with partnering dance centers to discuss residency goals, challenges, and learning
3. Fees for services provided, as well as a modest honorarium

EXPECTED OUTCOMES
In the long term, success would be determined by strengthened career pipelines and employment for dance artists with SCI and a more engaged, accessible and inclusive residency community. In the short term, success will be measured by:
1. Improved training and professional opportunities for the participant pool
2. Visibility for participants and the landscape of artists with SCI, which could encourage greater investment and engagement
3. Enhanced access and inclusion activity by partnering dance centers
Benchmarks Dance/NYC will use to measure success will include: the number of artists with SCI served (estimated 6-12); professional growth and opportunities reported by participants; the development of audiences and supporters for the participants; participation by partner organizations in project activities and learning reported; and the reach and visibility of the project, measurable through online metrics (Dance.NYC), press, and testimony.

RELEVANCE TO NEILSEN FOUNDATION’S MISSION
Inspired by the Foundation-supported Creative Access: Residencies for Visual Artists & Writers with SCI, the project is highly innovative and entirely unique in the dance field, with the capacity to catalyze far-reaching change. While piloting this program with Gibney and Spaceworks, Dance/NYC would develop a project model that could be scaled up locally, regionally, and nationally. It has the potential to serve a wide number of artists with SCI and to achieve the Foundation’s priorities for independence, career development, and employment. (CHN: COandI chn:wdg)
