GDIF major contributor to Jerwood Choreographic Research Project

Dance Exchange cap


A National Dance Network initiative, supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation and delivered by DanceXchange.

The Jerwood Choreographic Research Project (JCRP), is designed to develop a new culture of investment across a breadth of choreographic research to benefit dance and the wider arts/cultural ecology in Britain. The project seeks both to stimulate new ideas and thinking in choreography and underpin the development of research projects with the aid of an innovative group of producing partners from across the arts. Therefore the JCRP seeks to broaden the understanding and value of choreographic material within the arts and cultural sector.

The JCRP will address the way in which research is discussed and carried out. This will be achieved by bringing a wide range of investors (the contributors) together from across the cultural sector to define the strands of enquiry for the research. When research projects are subsequently funded, these contributors play a lead role in realising the research alongside the successful artists.

The following artists are supported by GDIF:
