Dance Research Matters Symposium

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


On May 27, C-DaRE partnered with the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) for a national event debating the future of dance research. Entitled ‘Dance Research Matters’ the event was organised to coincide with Coventry City of Culture and was organised in a hybrid format, with C-DaRE team members and AHRC colleagues at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry and nearly 250 delegates joining online worldwide. The day included a range of chaired panel discussions and a conversation between Professor Christopher Smith, Executive Chair AHRC and Baroness Deborah Bull, Vice President and Vice-Principal at King’s College London.

The discussions were extraordinarily rich and diverse, with plenty of imaginative thinking about how to build and sustain the future for dance research, and important why dance research matters. Documentation from the day will be available soon and an event website is documenting the event and continuing the discussions to build a repository of ideas:
