Hosted by artists Seeta Patel and Joe Moran (and one more artist to be announced). Open to all interested independent dance artists and producers.
One of two Artist Gathering meetings this spring in London and Leeds for independent dance artists and producers to learn more about and contribute to the international programme of work ‘Dance from England’ led by Dance4 with investment from Arts Council England.
The four-year (2018-2022) Dance from England programme has an Advisory Council that includes independent artists and producers who have championed the desire to involve the voices and perspectives of a wider group of artists and producers on the developing programme and thus invited Dance4 to attend two Artist Gathering meetings, one in London and one in Leeds.
The artist-organised and artist-hosted meetings intend to create that dialogue in a spirit of collaboration that acknowledges the critical role of independent artists and producers and in the development of our artform. The gatherings invite Dance4 to share the developing programme and to listen to and be informed by the expertise of artists and producers from across the sector. The gatherings are a space for artists and producers to be in conversation and exchange, not simply a response to the presented ideas.
If you are interested to contribute your views to this process but are unable to attend the meetings, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will invite your contribution in another form. This may be an informal conversation or online feedback.
Please note the other Artist Gathering meeting this spring will take place at Yorkshire Dance in Leeds on Monday 9 March, see here for details.
