is an initiative of Nightswimming
, a Toronto-based development centre for theatre, dance and music performance. Created "to foster theatrical experiments that are not specifically linked to the creation of new work," Pure Research invites artists to submit proposals and provides funding to successful applicants.
The Canadian Centre for Theatre Creation is currently partnering with Nightswimming to enable Pure Research to take advantage of the University of Alberta's Department of Drama facilities. Other post-secondary institutions that provide space for Pure Research investigators are Vancouver's Simon Fraser University and the University of Toronto.
Please keep checking this page for application deadlines for Pure Research proposals based at the University of Alberta in 2012.
