Dance, Health & Well-Being - Round Table Discussion
hosted by European Dance Development Network
What strategies and skills for health and well-being can dance bring to society?
And how can those same strategies and skills inform our own work environment and the measures needed to improve conditions for dance professionals?
EDN - European Dance Development Network - invites contemporary dance & performing arts professionals, artists, thinkers and sector representatives to join a round table discussion on health and well-being in the contemporary dance sector. As EDN’s activities in 2024 will focus on these themes, we’d like to use this conversation and the exchange with you as a starting point for our research that will lead up to a publication with recommendations for the field and policy makers.
