Through a series of residencies in Germany, Finland, the Netherlands and the UK, participating artists will have the opportunity to extend their professional network, work alongside peers to exchange and develop their individual and collective practice, whilst generating new knowledge in the area of community engagement in dance.
The selected artists will work in two groups of three across 2021, coming together on three occasions in each of their home countries, hosted by one of the partners. Between residencies the network of six artists and six partners as well as Goethe-Institut colleagues from across the region will come together digitally to explore cross over themes, hear from experts and develop a shared understanding of the practice of community engagement in dance.
