Touch&Play Inclusivity Scholarship Application
Applications are due by Aug 22, 2021 and will be awarded Aug 25, 2021. Thank you for applying! Also if you need more support feel free to additionally apply for work study hours.
Criteria of who gets chosen
This scholarship aims to respond to the wealth gap caused by identity-based oppression and marginalization, specifically for BIPOC, trans and gender non-conforming folx, and differently abled folx. We see that these groups may have obstructed access to finances - both personally and inter-generationally - and so we wish to offer financial support with this lens of equity and social reparation.
The following criteria will be considered in the selection process. We are specifically interested in attracting dancers who:
1. Are new to Touch&Play and/or new to Earthdance
2. Identify as a member of BIPOC, trans or gender nonconforming, and/or differently abled communities. (or other marginalized identities we do not know to name)
3.Have demonstrated a commitment to exploring building community with embodied, emotional, and erotic intelligence
4.People who will share inspiration and wisdom from T&P with your local communities.
