Visiting Artist Programme

Alongside the Big Pulse Intensives and mentoring programme, the Big Pulse Visiting Artist programme invites artists to visit partner festivals, stimulating artistic development, creative exchange and valuable networking. 


Selected artists will have the opportunity to visit diverse dance festivals across Europe, meet local artists, attend performances and gain inspiration and expertise as they progress in their work. It will also offer artists the chance to engage with presenters and promoters, providing essential networking opportunities.
