Our Dance Democracy 3

Angel Field Festival 2023: Our Dance Democracy 3

Wednesday, 29 March 2023 Time: 9am

Our Dance Democracy was founded in 2018 in Liverpool, a city of defiance, solidarity and home to radical and diverse dance, performance and cultural heritage practices.

Our Dance Democracy 3: Courageous Conversations Positively Democratising Narratives addresses dance, performance and heritage practices which positively disrupts Western canons, and promotes the artist voice, agency and endeavour which enhances critical art practices.

In Our Dance Democracy 3 we invite dance, performance and heritage practices which explore expansive understanding of human experiences that speak to an equity of belonging, and champion diversity and identity politics. In this event, we would like to encourage the power of Courageous Conversations and at the same time advocate a safe and transformative space.

The Conference takes place across two days at Liverpool Hope University Creative Campus (Wednesday 29th March) and Edge Hill University (Thursday 30th March):
