BDN House Warming
Talking dancers’ rights with Equity and BRUMproclass #useitorloseit PLUS mince pies!
You’re invited to BDN House Warming – Equity-focused conversation and BRUMproclass open meeting. Come and see BDN’s new home – that’s right we have an office, people! (Don’t think ‘office’, it’s more like a BDN cosy cove filled with warmth, wifi, a yoga mat and progressing furniture) It’s perfectly BDN!
On this very special day we will also be joined by Equity for the all-important discussions surrounding ‘life as a freelance dance artist’. Equity would like to hear from you, so come along on 12 December as we engage in informal conversations that will help them continue to shape their priorities, direction and future working.
Whether you’re a dancer, a performer or a choreographer, let’s talk about your value and your rights, and how you can understand them further. Equity want to hear ‘about what’s tough for you and also about your successes’.
* Please note that you do not have to be an Equity member to attend this meeting!
This is a great opportunity to ask Equity questions and learn more about the work that their dance committee have been doing.
We will conclude the day with an important open discussion regarding Birmingham Pro Class. As you may or may not be aware, BRUMproclass is a pilot, one that we and a number of other local organisations are trialing and developing in order to provide the community with regular professional dance training. However, this pilot can only continue if we sense that the initiative is needed, used and understood by community, which leads us to host this important ‘use it or lose it’ open meeting. We want to hear from you regarding the new #BRUMproclass scheme. What motivates you to come to professional class? What excites you about BRUMproclass? Are you enjoying it? Does it suit you? What can be improved on? Is there anything missing?
Everyone is welcome and there is no need to book. Simply show up – our door is open and there are mince pies waiting for you!
