Dance makers make dance. We make opportunities for them to do so. And with your support, we will be able to offer FREE access to incredible opportunities, here and internationally, to:
- practice and to learn
- think and work with the very best
- access employment and production resources
- receive expert and practical support
- connect and expand via our strategic international partnerships and other alliances.
Help to build remarkable careers for independent dance artists by supporting Dancehouse’s new Education Fund. By offering FREE access to world-class professional opportunities, both here and overseas, you and Dancehouse will shape a sustainable and bright future for Australian dance.
Now more than ever, it is the time to support our PLUS1 campaign! Creative Partnerships Australia and the Dancehouse Board/supporters will quadruple your DONATION!
Over the next three years, more than 100 local artists will benefit from the new Dancehouse Education Fund.
The impact of these Dancehouse programs will enable over 100 individual artists to make work and sustain their careers.
The Dancehouse Education Fund will give independent dance makers FREE access to our world-class professional development programs, both at Dancehouse and around the world. They offer a multiplicity of opportunities including masterclasses, mentoring and training labs, international travel grants to present work, attend workshops or take up residencies, as well as other career development opportunities.
Independent dance makers continue to operate under conditions of hugely competitive funding opportunities and considerable professional vulnerability. Their ability to directly access resources, networks, communities and audiences is limited, which diminishes their capacity to practise and to develop the necessary artistic and entrepreneurial skills to continue creating work.
In this precarious environment, the place of Dancehouse is more important than ever! As Australia’s leading centre for independent dance, the multiplicity of development opportunities we offer is nationally unique and places us on par with renowned international institutions such as Movement Research/New York, The Place/London and National Dance Centre/Paris. It is our responsibility to be able to offer free access to these opportunities to both local and interstate artists and continue to nurture the development of dance in Australia.
To be a part of Dancehouse’s first Education Fund is to invest in the Australian independent dance sector, a dynamic community of artists, and in an artform that provides a vital and vibrant contribution to our society.
A GIFT OF ANY SIZE WILL MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE!
AND IT WILL BE MULTIPLIED BY FOUR!
