Katrina Lazaroff in consultation with Ausdance SA sent out an e-mail to over one hundred South Australian independent dance practitioners and key industry organizations to initiate an
Independent Dance Artists / Dance Industry meeting. Katrina suggested 4 main objectives for this meeting and called for further ideas and issues to be shared via e-mail. Twenty two emails were received in response to Katrina’s initiative. Some of the responses were very brief, offering general support for all of Katrina’s ideas. Other responses contained pages of details and many ideas. All in all everyone was very supportive of what was proposed and agreed whole-heartedly with Katrina’s objectives.
The responses to these e-mails were then collated and summarised. Katrina Lazaroff, Phil Callaghan, Carol Wellman Kelly, Richard Seidel, Cherie Broad, Peta Johnston and Effie Saloniklis then met to plan the structure of a Dance Industry meeting. Based on the e-mail responses from independent dance artists, the following have been identified as the four main areas to be discussed at the meeting on Sunday 31 October.
Please consider these objectives carefully in the context of what is currently available within the industry and bring your ideas to the meeting.
1. The establishment of a central dance / arts hub.
2. The creation of an organization (in addition to Ausdance SA) to support and promote the work of
independent dance artists.
3. The development of initiatives for the youth dance sector.
4. The formation of a panel of key industry representatives to advocate for strategic dance
initiatives in South Australia.
The aim of the South Australian Dance Industry meeting is to offer members of the dance community the opportunity to explore these ideas, unpack the possibilities’ associated with them and to share opinions. The community consultation will help us to identify clear steps forward and to determine priorities in relation to these objectives. RSVP email@example.com or by phone 8212 0825
