This request for proposal (RFP) invites arts consultants and researchers with high-level knowledge of the arts and culture in Canada including the dance field as well as experience in creating and managing large scale surveys to submit proposals to provide research and analysis to the Canada Council for the Arts (Council). Consultants may collaborate on the project providing there is one lead consultant/researcher managing the project and responsible for the contract. This RFP is a component of a larger overall study (Canada Dance Mapping Study).
The current Request for Proposals is for the final phase of the Dance Mapping Study – a survey of dance organizations with an emphasis on social impacts.
The goal of this phase of research in the Canada Dance Mapping Study is to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the scope and reach of Canada’s dance organizations connections in other sectors by evaluating their scope of operations, provisions for dance professionals and leisure dance participants and economic data. Broadly speaking we are interested in obtaining a better understanding of the social impact of dance organizations.
