Creative Crossroad

Creative Crossroads supports emerging and mid-career artists nominated by each network member to enjoy financial and structural support over the course of 2 years – which makes two cycles. The focus is put on enabling dance and performance creation and there are several meetings for the artists to get to know each other, their work and the network partners. There is a strong commitment to engage in the continued accompaniment of the selected CC artists.

The artists or artist collectives are selected and nominated by the partners, partially via open call. Cycle one happens in 2023 and 2024, cycle two will take place in 2025 and 2026.

Showing: several attempts at braiding my way home

Creative Crossroads artist Adam Seid Tahir is showing their work several attempts at braiding my way home, which they developed together with their sister Amina Seid Tahir, at MDT Stockholm. Shifting between labour and speculative proposals several attempts at braiding my way home insists on fiction as a tool for quaking potential and finding opportunities for recovery and belonging. The performance swims alongside Clymene dolphins, who defy understandings of heritage. It listens to walruses who trust their hair for navigation.
