The "Blank pages – music and dance" programme is addressed to Polish and foreign scholars who intend to carry out research related to neglected or little known areas of Polish music and dance. The research priorities of this edition of the programme concern composers Władysław Żeleński and Henryk Pachulski.

The research may span a broad chronological spectrum and a variety of genres, and may investigate composing, artistic activity, musicological activity, reception of music, as well as the history, theory and aesthetics of Polish dance, in particular performance dance. The expected outcomes – such as an academic paper, catalogue of an artist’s output, database, reconstruction of a piece, study of source materials – will be financed and published by IMiT.

The deadline for applications is 30 June 2020. Electronic applications should be sent to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ("Blank pages – music and dance" – application).
