The AHRC-funded ‘InVisible Difference; Dance, Disability and Law’ project is holding an ‘Intersections Forum’ to mark the end of its first year, bringing together an invited group of experts in the fields of dance, disability and law, from within the research and professional practice communities, to discuss the intersections between subject domains. The outcomes of the Forum will be disseminated and will inform the public symposium that will take place towards the end of the second year of the project. To find out more about the project, please visit the website and join our mailing list: http://invisibledifference.org.uk
The InVisible Difference project seeks to extend current thinking that surrounds the making, status, ownership and value of work by contemporary dance choreographers. We are researchers from two different disciplines – dance and law – and our primary focus is on dance made and performed by disabled dance artists asking what is it in existing theoretical and legal frameworks that helps or hinders the participation of disabled dance artists in the mainstream?
