The new Mayor and the GLA (Greater London Authority) are undertaking a London-wide mapping and infrastructure study of the dance sector. The work is part of the Mayor‘s Cultural Infrastructure Plan to establish what London needs to sustain and develop culture to 2030.
Along with We Made That, Dance Umbrella have been commissioned by the GLA to carry out this work. The study includes mapping and geographical assessment of established dance venues and studio spaces, engagement with organisations managing these premises, and consultation on the accessibility and affordability of dance studio and venue spaces for rehearsal, production and performance purposes.
As part of this study we are pleased to invite you to join us at the London Dance Infrastructure Event.
Where: City Hall Committee Room 4 (Lower Ground Floor)
When: 16 March 2017, 3:30-5:30pm
Why: This event is aimed at London’s dance space users. The event will gather information from artists, organisations, touring companies and independent practitioners who make use of London’s dance studio and venue spaces, and will address questions relating to affordability and accessibility of dance space in the city.
Attendance to the event will be on a first-come first-served basis. To RSVP, please send your name, organisation and email contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
