CLASH! Festival – Day 6 – CLASH! Experience: Lessons Learnt, New Paths and Perspectives

Day 6 | 13th of December – Curated by Sapienza University of Rome and Balletto di Roma

– CLASH! Experience: Lessons Learnt, New Paths and Perspectives. What has the CLASH! project brought to light in terms of shared knowledge and new perspectives between partners and their stakeholders? How has CLASH! project, the dance sector and the overall performing art sector reacted to the COVID19 emergency in terms of digitalization of contents, and which are the good practices we can learn from and capitalize for the future? How is the access to funding changing in response to the new challenges of the cultural sector (sustainability, digitization…)? These are the key questions the last day of the CLASH! International Festival will address. It proposes two international round tables with relevant keynote speakers from the European Commission and important European cultural and dance networks. Finally, it will be performed the videodance piece The Hybrid in Dance Models. Visual Storytelling of Choreographic Creative Processes produced by Sapienza University of Rome.

-Marta Gutierrez Benet /Programme Manager, Erasmus+ programme coordination, Directorate General Education, Youth, Sport and Culture/

The round table aims at providing useful and up-to-date information on the funds available for the culture and dance practitioners.
