Webinar #2: Stories from the ground
10 September 2021, 9.30-11.00 BST | 10.30-12.00 CEST.
As borders reopen and international artistic exchange can take place physically this summer, the aftermaths of Brexit will become more apparent to the dance professionals on both sides of the Channel. This is the reason why EDN and Arts Infopoint UK invite you to take part in a 2nd Post-Brexit Mobility webinar, which will focus on stories from the ground.
Cultural mobility expert Marie Fol will exchange with dance professionals who have experienced the Brexit aftermath, asking them to share observations and tips on how to navigate this new reality.
Participants will have the opportunity to bring more concerns forward, which will be shared later on with policymakers, funders and other stakeholders.
We invite you to register for this event through this form and appreciate any additional information you can provide so the webinar is tailored to your needs.
All online sessions will be recorded for documentation purposes.
