Arts and Prisons: Transformed Through Dance

15th April 2011

An 'In Conversation' Event

Create in Partnership with Dance Ireland and Dublin Dance Festival

Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts in social and community contexts, in partnership with Dance Ireland and Dublin Dance Festival, will host Transformed Through Dance, an in conversation event with Nikki Crane, Advisor to Dance United and Paul Johnson, CEO Dance Ireland.

Nikki Crane will explore the history and practice of the award- winning UK based Dance United, who pro-actively work with young people at risk of (re)offending. Nikki will also explain how the company developed evidence-based evaluation tools that show how dance does make a difference. The event is open to dancers, performers and all those with an interest in art making in the context of arts and prisons.

The in conversation event will be followed by an opportunity for everyone present to ask questions. Tea and coffee will also be provided.

The event takes place 15 April, 2011 from 2-4.30pm in the Artists Resource Room, Dance Ireland, Foley Street Dublin 1.

Please note there are limited spaces available – to avoid disappointment please book your place at Transformed Through Dance by email: reception@danceireland.ie or tel: 01-855 8800.

Transformed Through Dance is the second event of the Arts and Prisons Network, a Create initiative curated by artist Aideen McDonald.
