WHY ARE WE FUNDRAISING?

For next year's Dance Trail we would like to take the support of artists one step further. Your support will fund: 

  • 5 bursaries for choreographers/companies to spend a day playing and exploring ideas for their work within the Dance Trail 2020. Artists will be invited to apply for one of these bursaries detailing how it would support the development of their work. 
  • The Dance Trail has always been organised and run by volunteers. This funding will enable us to give a small financial contribution towards the time of a volunteer producer. 
  • Support to help artists to take the work they make beyond The Dance Trail. 

With your support we can make this happen for the first time, making next year's Dance Trail the best one yet. 

ABOUT THE DANCE TRAIL

Sussex Dance Network have put on a Dance Trail in Brighton Fringe for five years supporting 34 pieces of work by new and established artists, and reaching new audiences. 

A multi-site outdoor event, the Dance Trail presents short works by choreographers and dancers and creates unexpected, unique and exciting contemporary dance for outdoor locations.

FURTHER REASONS TO SUPPORT OUR CAMPAIGN

If you need more reasons for why you might like to support after watching our video here are a few more:

  • We want the Dance Trail to represent the diversity of artists working in Sussex and hope these bursaries will help to remove any barriers preventing people from applying to participate. 
  • Do you enjoy arts and culture in Sussex? By supporting this campaign, you will be supporting a network that retains artists in the area to ensure that the arts scene in Sussex remains vibrant now and in the future. 
  • This extra boost will enable our volunteer producer more time to spend on making this the best Dance Trail yet, with earlier programming and more specialised support for artists.  
  • Are you an artist wanting to come perform in Brighton Fringe? The Dance Trail guarantees you an audience and we take care of the registration fee and insurance. 

Thank you for taking the time to read our campaign. We promise with you help, we will be able to grow the Dance Trail year on year to better support artists and better achieve our aims.
