BE A DANCE ADVOCATE
What we do
The Canadian Dance Assembly fiercely supports and actively connects dance ecosystems across the country with over 500 individuals and 100 organizations. As the only national dance advocacy organization, we provide timely resources to empower and strengthen dance artists and arts workers across the field.
We are proud of our recent work within our dance communities, including:
- Mobilizing emergency pandemic financial support for over 1400 artists, through Resilience Fund, prioritizing equity-deserving communities.
- Hosting a four-part workshop series on trauma-informed practice, consent, and conflict resolution, which provided a safer space for artists to think individually and collectively about how to build liberation-focused and anti-oppressive values into their practices.
Our on-going work for dance advocacy beyond dance spaces has included:
- Advocating the federal government for improved working conditions, through Employment Insurance (EI) reforms
- Partnering with national arts organizations for collective advocacy, digital tools, international mobility for dancers, and audience-ticketing research
