Europeana Space Digital Dance Day
As part of the EU funded Europeana Space (ESpace) project, C-DaRE will be holding a Digital Dance Day, to showcase two recently developed digital tools for dance practice and scholarship.
ESpace is a three-year project, now in its second year, which examines the creative reuse of cultural heritage across a range of art and media forms. As part of the project researchers at C-DaRE have teamed up with partners from New University Lisbon and IN2 to develop two digital tools to facilitate and encourage creative engagement with digital dance content.
Dance Pro is a digital annotation tool, which allows users to inscribe on top of live streamed and recorded footage. It is designed for use during and after the creative process, allowing artists to notate their work and draw attention to key features. The tool allows for aspects of choreographic thinking to be communicated across disciplines and has great potential for use in educational contexts.
Dance Spaces is an online portal that allows users to search, collate and organise dance content. It facilitates the development of virtual exhibitions, specialist educational resources, and expansive collections of online and personal content.
The ESpace Digital Dance Day will introduce the tools through a series of practical workshops led by Sarah Whatley, Rosa Cisneros and Hetty Blades. The morning session (10am - 12.30pm) will explore the potentials of annotation in studio contexts. Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with using Dance Pro in their own practice, and explore the multiple ways in can be used for research and education.
The afternoon session (1.30pm – 4pm) will look at 'remixing' dance, using Dance Spaces to source, learn, re-make, and share online content. We will explore embodied interaction with digital dance, developing new works and collections for submission to an online dance exhibition.
Participants are welcome to join us for one or both sessions. The day is suited to dance practitioners, educators, students and researchers, as well as those with an interest in dance working in neighbouring fields.
The event is free, but places are limited and participants must register before 11th March via the following link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/espace-digital-dance-day-tickets-21307540427

Everyday Resistance of Kashmiris, Kurds And Palestinians: Countering Domination via Nonviolent Means
This conference will explore the power of everyday resistance among Kurds, Kashmiris and Palestinians and the different shapes and forms this takes locally and transnationally. People of Kashmir, Kurdistan and Palestine have a long history of resistance and they have shown many examples of what James Scott called “weapons of the weak”. In all three contexts, it is possible to find examples of nonviolent collective and individual actions which have deep symbolic and ideological underpinnings. Often everyday resistance practices intersect with organized political collectives that are much more visible than the typically subtle repertoires of everyday resistance.
Refugee resettlement: global dynamics, local challenges
Around 22.5 million people around the world have been displaced across international borders by armed conflict, persecution or human rights violations. UNHCR estimates that two thirds of this population have been living in long-term, protracted displacement. For this Breakfast Briefing, Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre with the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations invite you to a discussion on the global dynamics and local challenges of refugee resettlement. We will ask; what is it like to be a refugee undergoing resettlement?
