The National Institute of Music and Dance invites researchers to study neglected and obscure areas of Polish music and dance. A priority in the 2021/2022 edition of the ‘Blank Pages – Music And Dance’ programme has been given to research the works of the members of the Association of Young Polish Musicians in Paris active between 1926 and 1950. The final deadline for submitting applications is 22 October 2021.
The programme ‘Blank Pages – Music and Dance’ organised by the National Institute of Music and Dance is addressed to Polish and foreign researchers who plan to conduct research, in Poland and abroad, into neglected and obscure areas of Polish music and dance, without the restrictions of chronology and genre. The end result of the research will be submitted in the written form (e.g. a musicological paper, a science article, a catalogue of an artist’s complete works, a database, a reconstruction of a work, a critical edition of source materials etc.) including such areas of study as a compositional output, artistic achievements, musicological activities, reception of music and dance in Poland, as well as the history, theory and aesthetics of Polish dance.
The budget for the Programme’s 2021/2022 edition amounts to PLN 150 000. Twenty-five percent of the edition’s budget shall be earmarked for research into the works of the members of the Association of Young Polish Musicians in Paris active between 1926 and 1950. In the event that the budget of the Programme’s 2021/2022 edition be not used completely, the Director of the National Institute of Music and Dance may arrange a second call for applications at a later date.
The applications should be sent only in an electronic version.
