SPACE TO DANCE is the campaign to generate support for The Dance Space, the new home for dance at the heart of the Circus Street development.
The Dance Space will connect local people to dance and to the power it has to transform lives. South East Dance has so far raised over 75% of the funds it needs for The Dance Space but still needs to raise £810,000 of its £3.78 million target. To raise the remaining amount the organisation is calling on local people and companies to back the campaign by making a donation based on whatever they can afford.
Every pound raised will go directly to building The Dance Space - and with almost 25% of the money still to raise, every donation will take South East Dance one-step closer to their overall target.
The launch event was held on April 16th in the Circus Street market and a host of local artists, business people and city-influencers, including Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of East Sussex and the Mayor of Brighton & Hove came along to support the campaign.
Jamie Watton, CEO/Artistic Director, South East Dance says:
“Dance is an essential part of all of our lives in different ways – it can enhance the lives of individuals and invigorate communities and the city but this vital art form does not yet have a permanent home in our city... We still need to raise crucial funds to make The Dance Space happen and we can only do this with the support of local people and businesses in the area. Please give as much as you can to make this fantastic new community resource a reality'.
