With years of experience as a leader in the South Asian dance sector, we have identified several key challenges facing culturally diverse dancers, including limited resources, professional development opportunities, and performance venues. To address these issues, we are launching the ShareSpace project, an annual initiative aimed at supporting dance artists within the dance community.
As part of this initiative, we will be providing two independent culturally diverse and indigenous dance artists with 100 hours of free studio space from April - June, 2023. The ShareSpace Program is intended solely for use of studios as rehearsal and creation spaces. Our goal with this initiative is to provide valuable support to those who face unique challenges in pursuing their art, and to help create a more inclusive and equitable dance community.
