European Video Dance Heritage (EVDH)

ENICPA was an associated partner in EVDH. This project is an EU project (2013-2015)

The overall goal of the project was to structure a European memory of dance through video and to transmit this heritage to younger generations, taking into account its political, economic, technical, legal and educational dimensions.

Specific objectives:

  1. To raise awareness among professionals, rights holders and policy makers of the need to preserve and transmit video dance
  2. To share and transfer knowledge and best practices related to the preservation and dissemination of video dance
  3. To share the memory of European dance
