Moving Bristol

Moving Bristol is a two-year project 2019-21 by Bristol Dance Futures aiming to connect and increase dance activities across the city.

The project focuses on two key areas - developing dance practice and new and existing audiences and developing an ecology of dance across Bristol.

Three Dance Hubs will focus on the development of Dance within Health, Young People and Audiences and placing artists in residence across the city to inspire dance practice.

Moving Bristol is part of Bristol Dance Futures, a consortia of South West arts organisations and practitioners who are working together to grow investment in dance.
