The 2013 Parent/Choreographer Space Grant will be granted to a total of two
choreographers who are parents of preschool age (0-4) children, and are
trying to meet the challenges of being an artist and a parent. Selected
artists receive 40 hours of space Monday-Friday between the hours of 9am
-3pm between April 1-June 30, 2013. Awarded rehearsal space will be used in
any of our four rehearsal spaces located in the BAX BUILDING at 421 Fifth
Avenue, Park Slope.

We are happy to announce the second year of this program. It is an
initiative by BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange, funded in part by The Andrew W.
Mellon Foundation to address some of the needs of choreographers who are
trying to meet the challenges of being an artist and a parent to preschool
age children. As an organization that has entered its third decade, BAX is
intimately familiar with the joys and the difficulties of raising a family
and creating and producing work. Besides a supportive environment to work
in, BAX will provide a $300 childcare stipend to each of (2) choreographers
selected. BAX has a playspace program on Mondays and Fridays from
9:30am-11:30am that will also be offered free of charge and your childcare
provider can participate.

Participants will be asked to work closely with BAX staff to document the
effectiveness of the grant, keep a diary and provide feedback to the

Application deadline: Monday, February 11th, 5:00 PM

Artists will be notified on or before February 25, 2013.
