Digital & Media Arts: Call-out for proposals 

We're looking towards a digital/media arts focus for the 2020 Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival.

We want the 1200 children & young people from 58 primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and community dance groups to engage creatively with artists and companies to evolve their understanding of digital & media arts and their potential relationship with dance. 

We've got a huge digital media presence at our host venue. For two weekends the University of York campus comes alive with campus digital displays, foyer screens and 3 high definition projection screens as a backdrop to the stage. Great canvases for work. 


Early days... and subject to successful applications for funding/sponsorship. But we want to start a conversation.

We did it in 2019 through 'Engage & Inspire'. You can watch the film here.

We'd like to work with artists across 4 areas: 

  • 1. Co-creation (with children and young people) of combined media arts/dance performance

  • 2. Co-creation (with children and young people) of dance film/animation or similar

  • 3. Digital Performance/installation on Festival weekends

  • 4. Participatory workshops on Festival weekends 

Fancy putting forward a proposal for one/some of these strands of work? Fill in the form below.
