National Dance Hui 2016
Together / Moving Forward
JOIN THE CONVERSATION!
Together/Moving Forward is a DANZ event bringing together the contemporary dance sector to share ideas and expertise.
The purpose behind a National Dance Hui is to allow for tangible benefits to occur from a shared gathering or collective experience. For information, knowledge or research to be shared in a way that has a lasting impact or on-going effect on the participants in a positive way. The title, Together / Moving Forward is purposeful in terms of signalling there is a need to work together if we are to move forward together as a community.
The event will be held over two days, 21 and 22 November, the days will include performances, panel discussions, presentations and forums framed in a context of themes relating to how the contemporary dance sector can move forward.
Audience First > Growing a fan base - Production of dance in New Zealand
Collaboration is Gold > Working with others - Independent artist network
Facts & Myths > Being realistic - Knowing how the arts/dance industry operates
The Money-Go-Round > The funding game - Sustained development of choreographers
Though the Hui will be primarily focused on contemporary dance, we welcome all people of the arts community to participate.
This is a chance for contemporary dance to have a voice, for a community to gather and inspire each other to greater things.
