We shape and articulate a concept for the freelance scene for Choreography & Related Arts, where we are taking responsibility for the nature, the purpose and the scale of our work. We attempt to create an exclusive structure, where different artistic interests, approaches and outcomes are appreciated AND needed!
Our concept takes shape in a series of open discussions and work sessions. More than 440 people have signed an earlier version online. The proposal is constantly discussed with independent artists from other disciplines, scientists operating within arts policy, philosophers and sociologists, and experts from industry.
April 7th 2011: we sent our first proposal to the Raad voor Cultuur.
May 9th 2011: we sent the proposal to
- the Secretary of State (Mr.Halbe Zijstra),
- the members of the House (Tweede Kamer)
- the press
- many stake holders in the field
