The Welcome Project

The Welcome Project is a programme of activities and events designed to encourage more people to dance in the run up to the launch of The Dance Space and beyond.

With the help of a brilliant and committed steering group made up of people from all walks of life living and working in the neighbourhood surrounding The Dance Space, we’re taking dance to communities - in their communities.

From tea dances at Brooke Mead Extra Care Housing Scheme to pop-up workshops at Brighton Youth Centre we’re challenging perceptions of what dance is and who it’s for.

In July 2018 we launched the inaugural Our City Dances festival, a flagship part of The Welcome Project which we hope will grow to become an annual citywide celebration of dance.

The Welcome Project is currently supported by: Brighton & Hove City Council, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, St James’s Place Charitable Foundation, Ernest Kleinwort Charitable Trust and Sussex Community Foundation.
