Representative contributors from across the sector are being invited to come together to discuss three broad themes:
Making Dance Performance - Challenges and solutions around how we can keep making work
Dance of Interdependence - Considering the overall dance ecology nationally and internationally
Shaping Sustainability - Exploring how we can build resilience as a sector and equip ourselves for the future
Dr Aoife McGrath is supporting these events through facilitation and documentation, and a summary of the discussion is shared after each session. Individuals and organisations are invited to offer additional ideas and input in response to the themes.
We hope that by capturing the perspectives, ideas and propositions from this process that we can begin to collectively create a roadmap to support the dance sector and its future direction.
