This year Steve Paxton originator of CI passed away. Filled with gratitude and inspiration we are delighted to invite you to join Towards CI52 Summer Residency 2024.

The program is open for most participants to pay what they can afford. The towards foundation supports those who want to participate but because of their financial circumstances cannot afford to pay the regular price to join.

We will find the way to support as much as possible, depending on resources of the foundation we gather through our recent projects and initiatives.

Acceptance will be based on application, in which your current interest and motivation in participation will be considered.

If you are willing to support the towards foundation you can contribute more than a regular price mentioned in registration form.
