National Dance Forum 2019

Advocating for Dance in Queensland

The NDF is the most significant platform for dialogue across the Australian contemporary dance sector. Dancers, makers, researchers, writers, directors, producers, advocates and educators participate in discussions about the inherent concerns and realities affecting current professional practice in Australia.

The National Dance Forum presented by Ausdance National and Tracks Dance, brings together artists, artsworkers, thinkers and activists to discuss and share knowledge on current practices on the theme of ‘Home – dance of place, disruption and belonging.’ The two-day forum focuses on strengthening the dance sector’s capacity and it engages artists in developing and sharing skills.

The program includes key-note addresses from Marilyn Miller, the inaugural Director of BlakDance, an advocacy body for Indigenous dance artists, and Nicholas Rowe, Associate Professor at the University of Auckland.

The Forum will be held in Darwin on 9 & 10 August 2019. This is the first time the Forum has been held in a regional location and reflects the strength and relevance of regional dance.
