Birrang provides creative and professional development opportunities for Indigenous dance artists based in NSW.
Birrang builds the capacity of each individual artist to realise their own goals, share creative ideas and practices and gain the skills and networks that will serve to strengthen their careers and the growing independent Indigenous dance sector across NSW.
Initiated in 2013, the Birrang program has achieved some significant outcomes for the participating artists including the development of new work and new professional networks, as well as guidance in managing and sustaining a professional career. The program is for artists working across the spectrum of cultural and creative dance – whether that be in a community context, education and/or performance and touring.
Birrang is supported by Arts NSW and coordinated by Ausdance NSW, Regional Arts NSW and Bangarra Dance Theatre in partnership with NAISDA Dance College, Carriageworks and the Australian Film, Television & Radio School.
