SYMPOSIUM: Lets Move to More Visibility

Was held on Friday 22nd September 2017

Tramway, Glasgow 

A one day symposium exploring how dance and the performing arts sector in Scotland can develop to have a greater representation and support of practitioners who identify as People of Colour (POC) and / or Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic (BAME).

We are looking to continue this conversation next year

Thanks Project X for a great day! Really enjoyed the mix of speakers and approaches. No 4pm conference day fatigue here :-) Left with head buzzing, as fresh as I arrived. A treat to see the performances, a privilege to be in the room with a genuine range of interesting and honest voices. You set the tone so clearly and touchingly for us as you opened the day. Congratulations and see you again very soon!

Hearing about the experience of Black people and people of colour in the arts and dance world highlighted my own white privilege

I’d like to be part of positive solutions and support rather than sitting back quietly with my privilege.

Enriching, inspiring, thoughtful, appreciative and grateful. Thank Project X
