Creative New Zealand is reviewing how we can best support and develop dance in New Zealand.
Our Dance review includes Creative New Zealand’s responsibilities for dance, the key roles in the dance infrastructure we fund, and how we prioritise our funding so New Zealanders have access to and can participate in high-quality dance experiences.
We are seeking your feedback via an online forum. Please use this forum to express your views and debate the ways Creative New Zealand and the dance sector can respond to the challenges and opportunities facing the sector.
We are sending notices about the forum through a number of organisations and apologise if you receive notification about the forum a number of times.
What is on the forum site?
To get the online discussion started we invited six dance practitioners to write about the challenges and opportunities faced by the dance sector. They were also asked to suggest what Creative New Zealand and the sector should be doing over the next five years to better support dance in New Zealand.
