Dance Consortia North West (DCNW) is a diverse collection of dance artists, companies and venues that come together to generate, collaborate and celebrate dance across the region.
DCNW identifies and delivers collective actions that produce change which is greater than artists and individual organisations could produce by themselves. Working together to make small changes and big impacts, DCNW aims to:
● Grow the quality and range of dance entering, generated in and emanating from the North West
● Nurture regional talent, enable artistic ambition, production and presentation
● Develop audiences, engagement and sector knowledge
● Attract regional, national and international attention for dance in the North West.
Supported by Arts Council England, its members and project activity, DCNW is a powerful consortium of dance artists, companies and venues that are collectively responsive to the strengths, needs and specialisms of the region’s artists and organisations, whilst also learning from and collaborating with the wider dance and cultural sector.
Together, the members of the consortium have built the North West Dance Plan, a long-term strategy to improve North West dance by leveraging the three pillars of Talent, Trade and Acclaim to drive the engine of dance and creativity in our times:
The Dance Plan is for the whole of the sector and for the benefit of dance artists, choreographers, companies, venues, participants and audiences. At DCNW we work to make sure that dance is thriving and valued across our region and beyond. Discover more here.
The DCNW website shares information about the consortium and how its members are working to achieve the Dance Plan. We use this space to share information about professional opportunities with our colleagues and supporters.
The Spring 2021 DCNW Newsletter is now available here.
