European Dancehouse Network
There’s limited information for artists and producers and for organisations in search of partners for exchange and collaboration.
The European Dancehouse Network commissioned an action research project in order to explore how knowledge exchange across networks can contribute to a mapping process.
A Hundred. Mapping contemporary dance resources in Europe is not an exhaustive study, but a preliminary data gathering exercise – an exploration of how this information might be distilled and disseminated. As an applied research methodology, it has been developed as a reflective process in which the outcomes can contribute to inform and evolve the research actions.
It is meant to capture a picture of some centres (be these established institutions or new entities, networks or festivals) that support dance and have a strong international projection within their core mission or vision. It might act as guiding framework for artists and professionals, helping them to make connections with each other.
