Project X celebrates and champions dance and performance within the African Caribbean Diaspora in Scotland. Through workshops, performances, artistic opportunities, discussions, screenings, a symposium and more, Project X platforms these contemporary and traditional dance forms whilst broadening perceptions and representation.
Project X has been developed by lead artists Mele Broomes, Ashanti Harris and creative producer Rhea Lewis.
Project X is about changing the conversations and perceptions around dance within the African Diaspora in Scotland. Through profiling practitioners and platforming the diverse styles, we celebrate our heritage and broaden the mainstream consciousness. Embedded through all of our programme is education through creative learning. We encourage all those who take part, to be empowered with the historical knowledge and its contemporary impact in every context they move in. Project X is collaboration and we celebrate the cross-pollination of identities, ideas and forms.
