EDN Conference 2022

How Can We Move? Ecological Perspectives in Contemporary Dance'

EDN is organizing an online conference to which artists, cultural practitioners, academics, and local and international policy makers are invited. The conference on 14 November between 10:00 and 13:00 will coincide with the release and public presentation of EDN’s upcoming research publication. 
𝐑𝐞𝐠𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐝𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐞: 10 November 2022
EDN invites you, dance practitioners, professionals, policy makers and dance lovers, to participate in the online conference “How Can We Move?”.
This question runs like a thread through the activities of the EDN, which the European Dancehouse Network is organising together with its members this year. Together with the participating artists, dance professionals, producers, academics and others, we asked questions around the topic of ecological sustainability in studios in Sofia, Athens and Dresden, at the artist exchange in Bassano del Grappa and at the EDN Think-In in Barcelona.
The annual EDN conference will bring these conversations, thoughts and actions together. During the three-hour online conference on 14 November, you, dance practitioners, professionals, policy makers and dance lovers, will have the opportunity to participate in an online conference designed to get us moving – right in front of our screens and towards a more sustainable future. The EDN will share its insights and recommendations with the presentation of the upcoming EDN publication, “Environmental Sustainability in Contemporary Dance: Emerging Issues, Practises and Recommendations”. Together with invited guest speakers, EDN will focus on the environmental aspect of contemporary dance in relation to sustainability, as well as social and ethical issues that will become more important in the coming years.
Register by 10 November 2022 and join colleagues, artists and peers working in the field of contemporary dance in Europe for an exciting programme of participatory movement practises, roundtable discussions, presentations and keynotes from forward-thinking advocates committed to a sustainable future for contemporary dance.
