360° - Building Strategies for Communication in Contemporary Dance

Over the course of one year, Dance Ireland partnered with 5 other EU dance organisations to develop a means to support dance artists and makers in the communication of their work.

360° - Building Strategies for Communication in Contemporary Dance (BSCD), involved a series of best-practice sharing meetings with the staff of the dancehouses, international communication experts and many dance practitioners at different career stages with diverse practices. With funding from the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union, we undertook five of these meetings over the course of a year to look at the needs of the sector and investigate the best practice approaches to help bridge communication gaps.  

As a result of this process, we have created a resourceful website which we encourage you to explore, and:
