One Dance UK publishes Brexit Findings – Movement Beyond Borders

21 Aug 2018

One Dance UK has launched an important report Movement Beyond Borders – The UK Dance Sector Outlook on Brexit.

Since the June 2016 EU Referendum, One Dance UK have been speaking to our members and stakeholders across the UK and with Government to define what Brexit really means for dance in this country.

This report sets out what we’ve learned and our recommendations of how to safeguard the conditions that will allow the UK dance sector to continue to thrive after the UK leaves the EU.

We’ve been busy on Brexit, creating the Dance Sector Brexit Working Group with representatives from across the breadth of the UK dance sector from major companies to individual artists; providing written and oral evidence to a range of Government and Parliamentary Committees; working closely with Government in providing input and insight on the UK dance sector and the potential impact of Brexit; and most recently were invited to meet with the Government’s Brexit Cultural Negotiating Hub team.

If the right safeguards are not put in place after the UK leaves the EU, we anticipate a detrimental impact on the UK dance sector, including on dance artists, companies and the artform itself.
