Essays, practices, tools, interviews and a polyphonic glossary to engage in building inclusive communities through dance

Migrant Bodies – Moving Borders (2017-2019) was a project supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union. It was an international research project focused on identifying and developing new and relevant actions for the inclusion of refugees and migrants through dance and movement based initiatives.

The final publication is a collection of essays, practices, tools and interviews to share what the 4 partners CSC Bassano del Grappa, HIPP, La Briqueterie and DID have discovered in their process. It is intended to support you in your own endeavors to build inclusive communities through dance.

At the core is a polyphonic glossary – a collection of themes from their journey, written by 50 participants and collaborators as a way to capture and demonstrate the complexity and diversity of the numerous perspectives at play in such an endeavor.
