DI will host Zoom calls each month with Members

Keeping in contact with the dance sector and supporting our DI Members is important to us. It's all essential that we all keep connected.

We are delighted to welcome Creative Ireland’s artistic director Tania Banotti, as well as Dance Ireland Professional members Lisa Cliffe and Catherine Donnelly, to speak about the Creative Ireland project, dance in education practices,the Creative Schools programme and the different opportunities it may offer for contemporary dance artists.

Dance Ireland members will speak about their own experiences in the dance and education field; Lisa Cliffe is a Creative Associate, as well as having vast experience in facilitating and researching dance in education. Dance artist Catherine Donnelly has worked in many schools including work on projects under the Creative Schools programme.

This meeting aims to encourage and inspire dance artists to think about different ways they can expand their dance practice within the education sector, and to get a general grasp on the Creative Schools programme. There will be time for questions and answers at the end of the meeting. The meeting will last approx 1.5 hours.
