A Conversation Place

A Conversation Place

Bringing together new and intriguing combinations of people who wouldn't normally meet face-to-face to shine a new light on the discourse that surrounds contemporary dance and choreographic practices.

A Conversation Place is a series of digital conversations with thought provoking combinations of people from multiple disciplines. Each conversation is presented to the public as a means of discovering new ideas that connect to 21st century dance and choreographic practice and shine a light on existing areas of discourse, as well as creating many more. ACP is a trans-disciplinary digital platform where experts in their field come together in a virtual meeting space to talk about an idea or theme. The aim of the project is to pull together practices in a mutually beneficial conversation; a place within which commonality between crafts can be explored and disseminated.
