AILEY and Curating Screendance into festivals
Join this WEAVE LabDay and hear from experts discussing questions around curation and representation of dance films in film festivals. This event is organised by WEAVE.
This LabDay will explore:
- The lack of dance films in film festivals; is there a need to curate more dance-related content?
- Lack of diversity in the cultural heritage sector; the Black and African Diaspora dance community is under represented - how can we challenge this reality?
- Using dance films and curatorial techniques to open up spaces to explore intersectionality through dance.
Each guest brings a unique perspective to the conversation and has experience of curating and organising a screening of the film AILEY by director Jamila Wignot.
