Funding awarded for #CulturalBridge 2023-2024

We are delighted to announce DU Dance (NI) have been awarded funding through the Cultural Bridge programme for 2023 – 2024 to continue to develop the Ode to Earth project!

The aim of the Cultural Bridge programme is to act as a platform of artistic exchange, enabling others to discuss social issues, strengthen the exchange between the UK and Germany and foster collaboration and cultural democracy.

With Beyond Skin and VILLA Leipzig (Germany) we are now in a position develop phase 2 of the Ode to Earth project which allows for cultural engagement on multiple levels, including engagement with young people from another country, travel and new cultural experiences, as well as interaction with music, dance, theatre and civic engagement as cultural mediums. The result is that young people will build a global network, feel more connected to the global community and other countries, and experience art as a medium for creative and cultural political expression and activism.

Thank you to the Arts Council of Northern Ireland for their continued support of this important initiative.
