The Love-In is pleased to announce our inaugural Residency program! This self-directed RESIDENCY is for dance artists who are based in the Greater Toronto Area looking to experiment and take artistic risks; the residency can manifest in many ways, whether you are just looking to try out a new idea or are in progress of a new work and need a supportive environment to flesh out the ideas further.

Each residency comes with 30 hours of studio access with our partner organization TRAC (The Railpath Arts Centre) as well as a public sharing will that will take place at TRAC and through Zoom with Lovers present afterwards for a moderated Q&A with the artists.

You can apply as an individual or as a group of 2 artists. Each artist will receive an honorarium of $900 CAD as well as mentorship and support from the Love-In. If you are applying as a duo, please have both artists fill out the application separately. In the space noted below, please name your collaborator.
