Blank pages – music and dance, is a program for Polish and foreign researchers to obtain funds for research on little-known areas of Polish music or dance. Research can be conducted both in Poland and abroad.

The expected result of the performed research are studies in written form (e.g., a musicological work, a scientific article, a catalog of works, a database, a reconstruction of a work, a critical-source study, etc.) in the field of, for example, compositional works, artistic activity, musicological activity, musical culture and reception of music or dance in Poland, and the history, theory and aesthetics of Polish dance.
