What’s Next in Restructuring the Dance Ecosystem? Online Conference 10.12.


EDN organizes an online conference inviting cultural operators, artists, academics, local and international policy-makers.  Thursday, 10 December 2020, 14:30 CET, Zoom. Register by 7 December 2020.

A Structured Voice from the Dance Sector

Acknowledging the challenges the European dance sector is facing, EDN invites cultural operators, artists, academics, local and international policy-makers to discuss adaptive measures and emerging issues that will contribute to co-designing a future-oriented approach for the field.

Cross-country collaborations, co-productions and work presentations have shaped the dance sector as highly international. Contemporary dance art-forms and practices, part of our intangible heritage, are being continuously created in dialogues between diverse local contexts and the international dimension.

Throughout the recent years, mobility has been prioritized as a fundamental feature in supporting the sector. Today, new paradigms have to emerge in order to tackle the sector’s need for achieving long-term sustainability.

Building on the latest field developments, EDN’s online conference provides insights into adaptive measures across Europe, emerging practices and current needs, envisioning a renewed dance ecosystem after a period of crisis.
