Dancing Museums - The Democracy of Beings



'Dancing Museums - The Democracy of Beings' is the second of two programmes, following an initial research phase that ran from June 2015 to March 2017 - Dancing Museums.
It is a capacity-building project as it originates from the belief that in a period of accelerated change, there is an urgent need for professionalism, shared vocabulary and a coherent conceptual framework that makes sense of the many different approaches to audience engagement.

In 'Dancing Museums – The Democracy of Beings', individuals and arts organisations share, improve, develop and transfer skills and knowledge needed to broaden and deepen connections and relationships with audiences.

The practice-led research group, composed of artists, dance organisations, museums and research partners from seven countries, looks at how the presence of dance can offer new ways of experiencing art and heritage and help audiences and visitors engage both intellectually and viscerally with artworks. The knowledge and experience generated throughout the project will empower the organisations and artists involved with the skills needed to implement meaningful audience development projects beyond the duration of the project.
