Reaching out to communities on our doorstep and beyond

We want The Dance Space to be a welcoming creative space that local people from all walks of life will feel really at home in, so we’re excited to be launching a new programme that will reach out directly to communities on our doorstep and offer almost 15,000 people in Brighton & Hove new opportunities to take part in dance.

Thanks to a £125,000 funding award from Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, the Creative Communities programme will allow us to develop new relationships with more than 1200 children and young people, isolated older people and long-term unemployed people in the Queens Park Ward of Brighton – one of the top 1% most deprived wards in England.

A core part of this programme is The Welcome Project, designed to inspire and entice local people to take part in dance. Amongst the exciting plans for the project are workshops, discussions, classes and performances as well as a new festival of dance curated by local people.

Fran Purcell, Head of Development at South East Dance, says: “In addition to the artistic community, The Dance Space also belongs to the people of Brighton & Hove - it’s their place to dance. To make sure that message is well and truly heard, we’ve set ourselves the important task of inspiring and engaging specific groups of local residents over the next three years. We’re planning a new city-wide dance festival as well as an artists’ commission working with local people. Watch this space to find out how to get involved!”
