ADVOCACY, CONSULTATIONS AND CRITICAL CONVERSATIONS
SECTOR NETWORKS – Facilitated Meetings
Our current key areas of focus and existing facilitated meetings, working parties and advisory groups are:
- Disability + Dance in partnership with Accessible Art NSW
- Independent and Commercial Freeland Dancers
COVID-19 – Advocacy, Information and Resources
We are constantly seeking, gathering and sharing information to support the dance sector on COVID-19. This includes:
- Weekly opt-in check-in meetings for the dance sector to connect and network
- Contacting government and local funding bodies to discuss restrictions, funding and financial support for the dance sector
- Communicating the current restrictions and how it affects the dance sector
- Sharing of COVID-19 resources
- Releasing the “Return to Dance” guidance notes in 2020 to aid in the safe return to dance. We are now reviewing this and waiting for guidlines or a roadmap for easing restrictions to release an updated version.
Ausdance NSW regularly meets with state and federal agencies, funding bodies and key stakeholders. The director of Ausdance NSW also sits on boards and committees in order to further advocate for the dance sector, as part of our Dance Nation.
