Dance Consortia North West (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.
DCNW works to identify and deliver collective actions that produce change which is greater than that which artists and individual organisations could produce by themselves.
We work together to make small changes and big impacts.
Dance Consortia North West, was co-founded in 2017. Cheshire Dance (an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation) acts as the accountable body for funding relationships for DCNW.
Dance Consortia North West looks to grow the quality and range of dance entering, generated in and emanating from the North West and seeks to nurture regional talent, enable artistic ambition, production and presentation, develop audiences, engagement and sector knowledge. As a consortium, we look to attract regional, national and international attention for dance in the North West.
Established in 2017, Dance Consortia North West is supported by its members and project activity, and is currently in year two of a four year programme funded by Arts Council England.
