Dance Heritage Think Tank on Feb 21st
On Saturday, Feb 21st, HFNL, MMaP and Neighbourhood Dance Works will host an open session for dance enthusiasts to meet and discuss the future of the tradition of dance in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The event will be an introductory platform for members of the dance community to consider our various dance heritages and identify what that means. The main objective is to serve as an information sharing and gathering process.
The session would be guided by a series of questions intended to generate discussion and pinpoint common themes and trends. We will discuss issues of “dance preservation” and what, why, who, and how we think about local dance history and traditions.
The outcome would be to consider:
a) if this a topic of interest to community members, and
b) is so, what future initiatives could be taken to address dance preservation in the province.
The event will take place from 1-4 at the MMaP gallery, Arts and Culture Centre. Stay tuned for more information, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
