Open conversations about The Dance Space
On Wednesday 28th November, we invited local people, arts enthusiasts and independent artists from across the region to join us for an informal chat about what The Dance Space will offer. As we countdown to doors opening in early 2020, we’re keen to have a lively dialogue about how the building will benefit the city and the region as a whole and what you’d like to see happening within it.
Lou Cope, our Dramaturg in Residence, chaired the session and here she shares her thoughts with us about the evening.
The consultation session was great. It was a proper two-way conversation between several members of the South East Dance team and members of the public from a range of interests and backgrounds.
Members of the South East Dance team were able to share key information about the look of the building, the purpose and design of the three studios, the office space available on the Creative Industries floor, the overnight accommodation for artists, and the programming vision for both the community and the industry – and that’s just for starters!
And the public asked lots of questions about how the building will work, what classes and shows will be on offer, how they can get involved.
It’s a hugely important conversation – because together we really can shape the way The Dance Space serves and supports us all.
Dance is finally getting a HOME in Brighton, and that home belongs to us all!
So, if anyone wasn’t able to make this session, don’t worry there are more to come. The next one is between 5pm – 7.30pm, Friday 15th February 2019 at The Basement, 24 Kensington Street, Brighton BN1 4AY.
