Jen, Chantal and Lindsey are coming together to pilot a peer to peer support network for female aerial dance artistic directors and leaders. All three are pioneers of aerial dance; generating, advocating for, and growing the sectors and communities in their respective countries over the last 2 decades from scratch. The project is running over a year, funded by Creative Scotland’s Four Nations International Fund, meeting online and then in each country for 2 days to connect, develop and support in person. All three share an extensive physical practice and an instinctive desire to ground ‘how we meet’ in the studio, to reconnect as moving bodies and artists and for our ensuing conversations to then flow from that shared meeting of physical bodies, practice and common ground, nurturing ourselves to better nurture the sector. Our time in Edinburgh will be the second in person meeting, having been at South East Dance in Brighton in June 2022, and visiting the Irish Aerial Creation Centre at the start of 2023.
