Achievements since Creating Pathways

The tables below provide the raw data generated at the NIDF 20017. Delegates identified the achievements of the Indigenous dance sector in Australia since Creating Pathways in 2005. Please note – this is raw data only. Accuracy of dates, people, organisations and spelling is incomplete. This will happen during the next step in the process.

 

The nine priorities identified at Creating Pathways in 2005 were used as the framework for identifying achievements.

  1. Acknowledgement and support for independent practitioners and companies
  2. Professional Development with a focus on business, culture, professional skills
  3. Advocacy including funding models, pay rates, public and political opinion
  4. Models for community engagement and connection
  5. Infrastructure to bring us together and speak for us
  6. Support for presenting and touring
  7. Access to funding
  8. Networking and information sharing
  9. Increased post-tertiary options and pathways
