The EU-Funded WEAVE Team has been hosting several Capacity Building events over the  last few weeks.  On April 22nd we held our final LabDay in the series but we continue to challenge issues in the dance and cultural heritage sector by creating spaces and events where under represented communities can come together, network, build solidarity and  share best practices.

Rosa Cisneros from C-DaRE  and a member of the WEAVE consortium, is also part of One Dance UK’s HOTFOOT Magazine editorial group and regularly contributes to the magazine. The  focus of the publication is to highlight work and events from Dance of the African Diaspora and build synergies. For this event the WEAVE  team have partnered up with One Dance UK to run Fundraising 101 – Operating as a *Global Majority Fundraiser in 2022.
