Wednesday 15 October 2014 by Carmel Smith

Whether you are a dance lecturer or teacher, a programmer or producer, an artist struggling to get programmed, a passionate audience member, a student wondering which way to go next, a local authority arts officer facing further cuts or someone who just wants to get involved you’re invited to join a conversation about the future of dance in the South East on Friday 7 November at Sadler’s Wells in London.

Organised by the Dance Strategy Group , (associated with *South East Dance) a collection of people committed to working together to share ideas and drive forward the development of dance in the South East, Face to Face is a biennial gathering of people working in or with dance. “We’re truly excited about Face to Face this year – the Dance Strategy Group are creating an event which is welcoming and open to anyone who is passionate about dance in the south east region and beyond,” says Jamie Watton, CEO/Artistic Director at South East Dance, on behalf of the Dance Strategy Group. “With the brilliant Improbable Theatre on board to facilitate, we really do want people to get stuck in to meaningful conversations and initiate genuine, positive change for the dance sector that we’re all so passionate about.”

Tickets (£15/£12.50 concs) are available online – but if you can’t come along, follow the event on Twitter using the hashtag #facetoface14 to contribute to the conversation and see the key themes emerging from the day.
