The trustees of The ELK-Foundation announced today that due to re-organisation of the grant system, the funds currently not taken up to improve and sustain emotional wellbeing in the dance community would have to be re-allocated by 26th July – most likely to musicians’ projects.
A donation to research reducing anxiety amongst people working on productions involving music and / or dance was made in April. The music industry has been quick to engage with the hei! process; less so the dance community.
Organisations representing people who work in productions that include dance, as well as dance companies themselves are eligible to apply up to midnight BST on the 26th.
Trustees are concerned that dance is less represented than other disciplines currently.
