2023 Cohort Program

New Works looks forward to offering the now annual Cohort Program as part of the 2022-23 Season.

The New Works Cohort Program is a 5-month long program offering both mentorship and coaching. Up to 10 participants will have the opportunity to create individual learning strategies with the support of the New Works team and network, alongside access to monthly workshops and peer learning sessions.

Potential Outcomes:


*Be part of a supportive network of dance makers, learning together and sharing experiences.
*Shine a light towards where your career or company is going, and feel empowered with new skills so you can get there.
*Be guided by a professional mentor, whose counsel is tailored specifically to your situation.

Selection Criteria:

  • This program is open to dance artists. Projects can include interdisciplinary elements.
  • This program is open to individuals, collectives, non-profits, and charities with an organizational budget under $150K.
  • The artist or company must be based in the province of BC.
  • The participant must have clear and specific goals and objectives.
  • The participant must commit to be present at the majority of the shared learning sessions: a 2-hour workshop + a 2-hour peer learning session each month.
  • The participant must commit to work with the mentor 1-hour each month for the duration of the program.

By learning from each other’s experiences, the participants will gain sustainable skills and knowledge over the course of 5 months (from January to May 2023).
