Talking Dance: The Future of Cultural Education

Monday 2nd August 2021
11:15 - 12:45 (BST)

This industry-wide symposium will explore the future of cultural education, with a particular focus on the role dance can play in supporting children and young people’s post-pandemic recovery. 

ISTD chief executive, Ginny Brown will be hosting and joined by guest speakers, including: Laura Nicholson (One Dance UK), Glyn Jones (CDMT), Solange Urdang (Urdang Academy), and a representative from Arts Council England. We will consider ways in which the sector can work together to ensure that all children have opportunities to learn dance.

We aim to 

  • Gain a greater awareness of the contexts in which dance is taught and the potential barriers to accessing dance education.
  • Identify ways in which organisations can work together to create a stronger infrastructure for dance education and talent development.
  • Provide delegates with tangible strategies for improving access to dance education.

Join us on 2 August, 11:15 – 12:45 (BST) and be part of the conversation.

Standard rate tickets cost £20 for non-ISTD members and will be available until 2 August 2021.
