Following on from three trips to northern cities with local emerging dancers, the Dance Exchange Hull saw dance artists, producers and collaborators come together to discover, explore and showcase the sector in Hull. Guests from Leeds, York, Newcastle and beyond were invited to take part in discussions, workshops and presentations led by artists in Hull.
Dance Exchange Hull seeked to examine how a healthy dance sector can grow and flourish with input from both organisation and artist-led projects. We explored what initiatives have impacted change in the sector, what opportunities there are for artist development across Hull and neighbouring cities and how we can all work together to influence the growth of our local dance sectors.
Throughout the event there were networking opportunities, a chance for local dance artists and professionals to showcase their work, as well as dance workshops and classes led by Hull’s artists. There was also time for discussions and conversations to take place led by both artists and dance organisations around the subject of sector and talent development.
Dance Exchange Hull aimed to provide inspiration and knowledge to attendees on what can be achieved through building creative networks and working collectively whilst mapping out what opportunities are available locally and regionally.
