We’re excited to be the lead-partner of Moving Beyond Inclusion – a new partnership project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union that brings together six inclusive dance companies and presenters from across Europe:
- Candoco Dance Company (UK)
- Croatian Institute for Movement and Dance / HIPP (Croatia)
- Oriente Occidente Dance Festival (Italy)
- Producentbyrån / Danskompaniet Spinn (Sweden)
- tanzfähig (Germany)
- BewegGrund (Switzerland)
At the heart of the project is the fundamental belief that working inclusively produces more exciting, more excellent artistic work for audiences to enjoy. Yet the mainstream arts sector is far from truly representing the diversity in society at large as opportunities for disabled artists to develop and present their work and for diverse artists to work together remain limited.
With the aim of firmly addressing these issues, Moving Beyond Inclusion provides a groundbreaking continuum from professional training to performance to audiences.
From July 2016 to June 2018 the partners are collaborating on a two-year programme of creative and professional exchanges, choreographic research, symposia, performances and skills development for people working in dance.
