Registration now open!

The ConferenceThe AHRC-funded InVisible Difference: Dance, Disability and Law project will be holding its final conference to share the outcomes of the research and to explore wider developments in the field of dance, disability and law. Aimed at artists, lawyers, educators, researchers and policy makers the conference will feature guest speakers and performances including Falling in Love with Frida by Caroline Bowditch on both days to generate wider discussion about the importance of knowledge exchange and interdisciplinary research for making a difference in the field of disability dance.
The conference title ‘Beyond the Tipping Point?’ acknowledges the current debates circulating within the dance sector concerning disability aesthetics and the conditions that will lead to change for disabled dance artists. Leading voices in the field, including Luke Pell and Dan Daw, have both publically referred to the Tipping Point and the current ‘Tipping Point’ project led by the National Inclusive Dance Network (NIDN) is seeking to create a tipping point for disabled dance artists by effecting change at community, regional and national levels, see:http://www.gdance.co.uk/partners__networks/NIDN_Network.aspx <http://c-dare.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=de560ab5c37dec2baca72a12b&id=47047fa6e1&e=7ea52f897b>
