These initiatives are part of the wider goal of the EU-funded research project Culture Moves, which looks at the intersections between dance, cultural heritage, tourism and education, as well as to the eventual development of an online toolkit aiming to provide dance artists and arts professionals access to dance / cultural content, and enable new forms of touristic engagement and educational resources.
All talks are free and open to the public: organisers welcome dance artists, learners, artists with a site-specific practice and invite all those who are interested in these ideas to join the initiatives and add to the conversation.
