Abstract

"Creative community leaders are calling out for sector change and policy reform whilst recognising the need for a systematic approach that is authentic to the intersectional needs of individuals, communities, and cultures (Wood 2021, Cisneros et al 2022, Cisneros, Nabirye, Ward 2022). Research shows that shifts in the cultural heritage and dance sector must be for and come from the people the change aims to support. Recent work carried out by artist-researcher Rosa Cisneros and PGR Jade Ward from C-DaRE, in collaboration with Mercy Nabirye from Kauma Arts, has highlighted the need for greater awareness of the intersections that exist within the creative sector in relation to the African Diaspora community. The findings point to there being a demand for diversity in the contributions, consultations and analysis that lead to sector restructuring and policy reform, with an end goal to regenerate rather than sustain a fractured model.
This poster presentation explores how the transformative nature of Intersectional-Based Policy Analysis (IBPA) Framework, and its guiding principles, might be used as a decolonising approach for policy analysis that aids a more just and equitable creative industry, with a specific and concentrated focus on deepen the artistic value and support for artforms within the Dance of the African Diaspora communities.
The presentation will also provide the team with an opportunity to showcase their findings, including a policy brief, which will be used to make further recommendations for specific sector changes and feed into an action plan.
