Open Space

17 November

Open Space – no agenda, no plans, no boundaries… You decide the discussion.

NDCWales, Ballet Cymru, Groundwork Pro, Kokoro Arts and Creu Cymru are hosting an Open Space event about dance in Wales.

Open Space events are created as spaces to discuss and problem solve together, with an agenda that is set in real time on the day of the event by those attending.

We’ll be aiming to discuss just one question:
How can we work together to create a fairer and sustainable future for dance in Wales?

This event is for anyone who has experience of dance in Wales at any level.

We welcome freelancers, hobbyists, people who work in arts venues, and both publicly and privately funded dance organisations.

To register your interest please submit your details here, you will be sent booking details as soon as they become available.
