Project Title and Brief: CADMUS – ‘Celebrating Cultural Communities’
Exploring cultural identity within communities. Looking at diversity, role models, tolerance, respect and acceptance of differences through dance and movement
We want to explore the theme in an exciting and innovative way through working with artist/s from a dance/movement specialism. Where possible, we are also interested in how digital art can be used in collaboration with dance.
We are looking for artist/s or an arts organisation to work with four primary schools in Walsall and Birmingham, all members of The CADMUS Federation, to deliver a programme of high-quality dance (and where possible, including digital) experiences. The workshops will lead to a final Celebration Event where all children and staff involved can share and celebrate their work in a creative way. We are keen that through this experience children and staff will explore and experiment with a variety of styles and techniques to develop skills and understanding in dance, and ideally linking in digitally opportunities. We are open to creative proposals covering different approaches.
We would like children to also develop confidence in using vocabulary in relation to dance, about themselves, and around exploring culture and diversity. We recognise that the arts are excellent in creating an exploration and greater understanding of complex issues such as diversity and developing cultural capital.
