Call for Artists – 2021 Summer Dance and Music Event

New Works invites expressions of interest from Metro Vancouver Performing Artists for our Annual Summer Dance & Music event at Ron Basford Park on CMHC Granville Island. Our Vancouver event is scheduled for August 22 2021. Please note we are looking for performances that are 60-75 minutes in length. Artists will provide one performance of 45-60 minutes at Performance Works and Ron Basford Park using their outdoor stage. The artists will also provide a pop up performance of up to 15 minutes with 1-2 company members at a central location on CMHC Granville Island one hour in advance of their scheduled performance as a preview.

Underrepresented dance and music genres are preferred for this presentation opportunity.


We welcome and prioritize applications from equity-seeking artists who have or are facing systemic barriers that infringe on their artistic career. This may include artists who identify as IBPOC and/or Trans, Non-binary, Queer, Disabled, low income, and are living in the intersections of these identities. For any additional questions or concerns, please send an email to presentations@newworks.ca.
