Saturday 17th February, 2pm to 5.30pm, on Zoom
You are warmly invited to attend and participate in this free online sharing and discussion event as part of the AHRC-funded network project ‘Dancing Dialogues’. The project aims to research traditional, folk, and national dance groups of all cultural identities, to facilitate discussion and sharing between dancers and academics. We are working directly with groups in three regions of England, the South East, Midlands, and South West, though for this online event we welcome participants from any part of the country, or internationally.
Add your dance group right away with your location, activities, photo and contact details onto our new online map for dance groups.
This project is designed to develop a network of dancers and dance researchers interested in discovering and sharing more about traditional, national and folk dancing activities happening in three regions in England.
There are several ways in which you could take part: a) Dance groups can map yourselves right away with your location, activities, photo and contact details onto our new online map for dance groups; b) You can email the regional researcher to request more information; c) You can contribute to the events that will be happening over the year.
Who we are and how to contact us
Dancing and dancers are at the heart of this proposed practice-based network that seeks greater understanding of traditional/folk/national dance forms currently practiced in England. Engaging key current research trajectories of diaspora, community, regionality, and urban cultures and identities, this project recognises and values the breadth of dance practices taking place under the headings of 'traditional', 'folk', 'regional' and 'national', and will foreground their complex, often contested, associations and histories.
