From May 10 – 16 the first Dancing Museums; the democracy of beings – meeting takes place in Nottingham, UK. Part of the meeting is the seminar: Why place dance in a museum/gallery?
More information about the meeting will follow here.
Dancing Museums; the democracy of beings is project in which different European dance-houses, a number of leading museums and the university Ca’ Foscari (IT) gather around the question: Can the presence of dance and movement in a museum context enhance the perception of art and heritage among the public? During the project artistic interventions in a museum context and the audience are central. An additional focus is the development of a framework for the development and improvement of knowledge and skills and a platform on which the knowledge on different forms of audience-engagement can be shared and transferred.
Dancing Museums; the democracy of beings will kick off in Paris, France on 14 October 2018 and runs until December 2021. During a long series of residencies, the dance organizations, the participating dance makers in various museums and in close collaboration with local universities, organize expert meetings and encounters with the museum public.
