As previously announced Dance4 has been awarded an increase to its National Portfolio Funding from Arts Council England to lead on international dance export.

We are now embarking on establishing a four-year strategy 2018-2022 working in partnership with UK and international partners to extend opportunities for independent artists to present their practice in international contexts.

This strategy will support independent English artists and producers to connect through presentation, discourse and residency with platforms and festivals in Europe and beyond. The programme will prioritise investment in artists and companies not in receipt of regular funding from Arts Council England.

More details of the full programme will be announced in early 2018.
