Dancers At Work Forum Series: #1 - Growing the Local Dance Scene
Tuesday, January 26, 2010
6pm - 7:30pm
The forum opens with a roundtable sampling of emerging, mid-career and established artists discussing the sustainability of dance-related careers in Chicago. How are dance artists locating and creating new opportunities to perform and broaden their audience base? What practical strategies are dance artists using to create exposure (print or email marketing, Facebook, face-to-face networking, collaborations, etc.)? Dance artists share their respective solutions for finding resources to help their creativity and their organizations develop and thrive. This series is curated by Meida Teresa McNeal. Audience Q + A is welcome.
Panelists include: Erin Carlisle Norton/The Moving Architects, Shirley Mordine/Mordine & Company (CDF Lab Artist 2004), Mark Hackman/Chicago Dance Crash, Kevin Iega Jeff/Deeply Rooted Productions Chicago (CDF Lab Artist 2009)
