The Art of being a Trip Hazard

Friday 23rd March 2018
Arts Practice | Event: 23.03.2018

10.30 – 5pm Workshop & Discussion @Tramway

5.30pm - 7pm A wee drink @ Tramway

A day to reflect on dance and disability in Scotland and to imagine together expansive dance practices which are reflective of many different people and bodies. Dance as an artform continues to evolve through the diversity of creative voices and physicalities now influencing development. 

The Art of being a Trip Hazard will be lead by choreographer and activist Caroline Bowditch, and is in collaboration with The Work Room, Tramway and Imaginate.

In 2008 Caroline was appointed as Scottish Dance Theatre’s Dance Agent for Change. In that role and through her own artistic practice her practice has been hugely influential on the dance sector in Scotland.  In July 2018 she takes up the role of Executive Director of Arts Access Victoria in Australia. In her 10 years in Scotland she has created and toured a body of work, including performances for very young audiences and outdoor spaces. She has been a Tramway Associate Artist and an Imaginate supported artist.

Through her work with Imaginate, Caroline has begun to write a Manifesto for the Arts in Scotland.  We are inviting artists, practitioners and arts organisers to work with us in developing this Manifesto to influence all our future work.

This FREE event is open to members and non-members of The Work Room and participants can choose to book into all or part of the event as they see appropriate. Places are limited on the workshop and discussion group and will be offered on a first come first served basis. To book your place email indicating which elements you would like to attend.
