The Wales Freelance Taskforce has published a report on Dance in Wales. This report has been compiled by Deborah Light with input from across the dance sector.

This report has two key areas of focus:

  • The chronic underfunding from ACW for dance in Wales as evidenced in data and statistics, corresponding with and compounded by lack of art form specific knowledge at ACW since 2012.
  • The systemic challenges facing freelance dance artists and strategic (ACW and APW) ways to support them in the development, production and presentation of dance in Wales.

The report is available here: https://freelance.wales/dance https://llawrydd.cymru/dawns

We hope this will gives an insight into the dance landscape in Wales and the particular challenges facing freelancer dance artists. We hope the recommendations are stimulus for action.

Here’s a ‘RoundUp Blog’ of all that Wales Freelance Taskforce have been working on.
