CultureMoves: Exploratory LabDay
The CultureMoves Exploratory LabDay invites dance artists, practitioners, choreographers and producers to explore Europeana content, curate mini-collections and consider the relationship between dance, public spaces and tourism. The LabDay will allow participants to explore Europeana (the digital online Library), the CultureMoves online toolkit (MovesCollect, MovesScrapbook and MotionNotes) and to create movement scores in the studio, using the digital content as inspiration.
This CultureMoves LabDay is part of a series of events organised by the EU-funded CultureMoves research project (https://culturemoves.eu) and the Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE), Coventry University. The project looks at the intersections between dance, digital technology, cultural heritage, tourism and education, as well as to the development of an online toolkit which aims to provide dance artists and arts professionals access to dance / cultural content, and enable new forms of touristic engagement and educational resources.
