Australia Council funds contemporary dance in regional areas

Australia Council funds contemporary dance in regional areas
February 16, 2015

The Australia Council for the Arts has funded five arts organisations to stage performances, mentor local artists and engage with audiences to enable regional communities to experience contemporary dance.

Australia Council Director Dance Carin Mistry said the funding would allow regional audiences to see touring productions by major dance companies and choreographers, newly commissioned work and meet the artists through activities such as workshops and Q&A sessions.

Mistry explained “contemporary dance is not often toured to regional areas, which makes it difficult for audiences to experience this type of dance and increase interest in this artform.”

The five organisations to receive funding are:

• Country Arts SA
• Mandurah Performing Arts Centre - Western Australia
• Ausdance QLD
• Frankston Arts Centre, Victoria
• BlakDance Australia in partnership with Performing Lines (National)

Applications are now open for the Australia Council's new grants model with the first round closing on 3rd March.
