One Dance UK Commissions Research into Freelance Workers in Dance

20 Nov 2018

One Dance UK has commissioned a robust research project designed to give insights into freelancers working in the dance sector.

Freelance workers form a significant share of the workforce in the dance sector, and One Dance UK is keen to understand the working lives of freelancers and gauge the contribution that this segment of professionals makes to dance in the UK.

One Dance UK has partnered with Arts Council England to commission researchers from the University of Bedfordshire’s Research Institute for Media, Arts and Performance to carry out this study, which we hope will uncover important and critical insights for dance.

The research team are approaching dancers, producers, teachers, choreographers, managers, researchers and healthcare providers to participate in the study:- The first of its kind for several years.

One Dance UK anticipate that the study will throw up pivotal findings that will help shape the advocacy work that they undertake on behalf of the freelance workforce in dance and inform the development of work and new initiatives that they and other partners carry out to support freelancers.

Participation from the sector will be key to making this important research project a success and the research team are keen to hear from every freelancer and independent artist at all stages in their career. One Dance UK urge everyone in the sector to get involved and complete the survey – it’s a unique chance to be heard and to make a difference to the UK dance sector.

Make sure you have your say!

Deadline: Monday 17 December
