The research will be built on a number of conversations/interviews with independent dance artists, administrators and leaders from our partner organisations. The ideas and experiences discussed in those conversations – along with reading available literature – will help develop our awareness of who has been effected by the conditions created by Covid 19, and in what ways, and what the sector has done to adapt and innovate. From this, we will work with our partners to develop and propose creative policy ideas. We will share the research through the following outcomes: a journal article, a public report, a dissemination event, and this website.
