Keðja is a community that supports the strengthening of the Nordic-Baltic dance field and networking of dance professionals in the region. Keðja is Icelandic for "chain".
Finished projects 2008-2010 and 2012-2015
The evaluation report (2015):
Fertile Ground – an evaluation of keðja 2012-2015
The keðja projects have offered opportunities to meet, exchange ideas and work across borders for Nordic and Baltic dance artists, producers, journalists and other dance professionals.
The aim has been to inspire, strengthen and mobilize the dance community in the region and develop the conditions and visibility of contemporary dance in the Nordic and Baltic countries.
Keðja is alive and – stretching to 2019!
