The aim of the incubation programme is to provide support for upcoming choreographers/artists who are eager to ask and explore critical questions about their traditional form.
The incubation programme is a 3 month long process. The first iteration ran from January to March 2022.
Applicants will need to fill in an application form, and upload the following documents: -CVs -A proposal for an idea that they want to explore further -An Artist Statement
The programme is open to Singapore Citizens/Permanent Residents who are independent traditional arts practitioners between the ages of 21-35, and are Self-Employed Persons (SEPs).
All applicants who have successfully completed the programme will receive a copy of their digital journal.
All applications will be reviewed by the organising team of Scarlet Mela. The selection process will place more emphasis on the applicants’ motivations and interest in expanding their practice further, as well as ensuring a pool of participants with diverse backgrounds and experiences.
Consultations are held on a one on one basis. The structure of the consultations will be kept open and flexible in order to cater to the participants’ needs.
Participants are free to culminate their ideas into any form that they are comfortable with.
