keðja – connecting the Nordic-Baltic contemporary dance community

The keðja project began in 2008 initiated by 6 dance organisations in the Nordic and baltic countries. Since then 10 Encounters (conferences/seminars) have taken place in 8 countries and self governing areas. From 2012 – 2015 more activities were added, – Wilderness residencies, two Think Tanks, Writing Movement activities and a Mentoring Scheme.
The project has twice received support from EUs Cultural Programme 2007-2013. From mid 2015 several of the activities are continuing, funded by national and Nordic funding bodies.
