European Video Dance Heritage (EVDH)

ENICPA is an associated partner in EVDH. This project is an EU project and starts in 2013

The overall goal of the project is 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.

The ambition is to imagine in five years’ time a freer circulation of dance video works and an increased collective awareness of the value of the video dance heritage. The increased knowledge, expertise and curiosity of the professionals and the general public of today and tomorrow will be a reflection of the success of such a project.

 

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
