Regenerations International Conference
December 2017 - December 2019
Producer • Project Lead • Presenter
An international forum exploring how technology drives innovation in dance of the African Diaspora.
Hosted in partnership by One Dance UK, IRIE! dance theatre, Middlesex University, dance Immersion and The Lowry, the theme for Re:generations 2019 was dance and the digital space. We explored the ways digital technologies can be used for artistic innovation and creative practise, unite global communities through online platforms whilst increasing the visibility of diverse work to mainstream audiences.
Across the three days there was panel discussions, lecture demonstrations, masterclasses, workshops, academic paper presentations, performances, networking events and more!
The conference provided CPD for dance teachers, healthcare practitioners and other dance professionals, in addition to bespoke programming for producers, new media practitioners and executive artistic leaders. A key event was the launch of the report for One Dance UK’s ‘Dance of the African Diaspora Mapping Research’; presenting the current state and needs of the DAD workforce with a scope for future growth and development.
