Chicago Dancemakers Forum Presents: Artist-Presenter Collaborations for Dance Symposium at High Concept Labs

 

Artist-Presenter Collaborations for Dance is a day-long symposium planned by the Chicago Dancemakers Forum (CDF) as part of the Regional Dance Development Initiative (RDDI), a program of the New England Foundation for the Arts’ (NEFA) National Dance Project (NDP). This multi-layered, joint initiative supports the professional development of Chicago-based dancemakers and stimulates networking and partnerships that strengthen the field of dance in Chicago.

RDDI Chicago activities began in April 2016 and continue through Fall 2017, with the capacity to reach more than 200 Chicago-area dance artists and practitioners. Artist-Presenter Collaborations for Dance is one of a number of public programs presented by CDF and other local partners that are designed to share the connections, discoveries, and learning generated during the RDDI Chicago Dance Lab—held over twelve days in Summer 2016 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign—out and into Chicago’s broader dance communities and among their members. The events offered during Artist-Presenter Collaborations for Dance will be particularly relevant to choreographers, Midwest and Chicago-area performance presenters, dance scholars and students, donors and funders, culture-seekers, and dance enthusiasts.
