The international event for anyone working in dance
Thu 13 – Sat 15 November 2014
Yorkshire Dance is very pleased to have been invited to contribute to this autumn’s People Dancing conference. Wieke Eringa (Artistic Director & CEO) will be taking part in a discussion called ‘Frameworks & Partnerships: organisational approaches to taking part’.
Hannah Robertshaw (Youth & Community Dance Director) will also present a case study about Dancing With Your Neighbours, a short film created in 2014 by young people from Yorkshire Dance Youth in their own neighbourhoods of Seacroft and Richmond Hill.
People Dancing is the first international event from the Foundation for Community Dance, dedicated to participatory and community dance, and socially engaged arts practice.
Wherever and however you work with people in dance, People Dancing provides an opportunity to share your practice and approaches to engagement across different international, social, economic and political contexts. Meet other artists, teachers and leaders to watch and talk about their work alongside inspiring and provocative keynote presentations from world-class figures.
People Dancing will provide opportunities for learning, debate, professional development and international networking through a broad programme of presentations, practical workshops and commissioned performances.
