Perspectives on Practice is People Dancing's new online programme of artist-led events and learning opportunities, discussion and debate, networks and spaces to gather, (re)connect and share. Perspectives on Practice runs throughout 2021 as our profession and the communities we work with begin to focus on recovery, and beyond to rejuvenation.

It will generate discussion, sharing, exchange, provocations and ideas with and between dancers, teaching artists, community practitioners, arts leaders and organisations - people whose work is dance and dancing.

We are on the lookout for adventurous, innovative, curious ideas that bring us unique, imaginative and engaging interventions and interactions and that are suitable for online delivery. This could be a workshop, event, discussion (of 1-2hrs) or… over to you…

We invite short proposals for a contribution to Perspectives on Practice and are able to support eight proposals (initially):

  • From dancers, teaching artists and community practitioners living in the UK
  • With a commissioning fee available of up to £500 per proposal
  • For delivery online, between May 2021 and December 2021
  • Deadline for proposals: 12-noon on Monday 19 April 2021.

Areas of interest include, but are not restricted to, new approaches in: socially engaged dance practices, hybrid in-person/online, health and wellbeing, working with defined or specific communities in dance, sustainability/monetisation of online work, equality and inclusion, practitioner wellbeing.
