International Initiatives

Dance Ireland works on a range of initiatives to provide access to professional development for Irish dance artists at an international level.

Dance Ireland is delighted to be part of the six organisations in Europe working on this new project. 360° - Building Strategies for Communication in Contemporary Dance (BSCD), aims to bridge a gap identified transnationally in the ability of dance artists and makers at all stages of their careers to communicate their work effectively beyond the medium of movement to a wide range of stakeholders.  In order to address this, the partner organisations will share best practices on the topic of communication with international experts through a series of transnational meetings.  The knowledge generated will be captured and shared through an online publication which will be available for free to all.

This initiative involves six partners from across Europe: Centro per la Scena Contemporanea, Bassano Del Grappa;  Dance Ireland, Dublin; La Briqueterie - CDC du Val-de-Marne, Vitry-sur-Seine; K3 – Zentrum für Choreographie, Hamburg; Dansateliers, Rotterdam; Hrvatski institut za pokret i ples, Zagreb and will run from 01 September 2016 – 31 December 2017.
