Playtime 2023 ‘Pollination’

Monday 9th October, Southbourne, West Sussex.


Sustaining ourself, sustaining others, sustaining the planet through creative dance.

Doodle Dance offers a day of curiosity led dance development, discussion and disruption to celebrate and continue from their ACE project ‘leading to a curious world’.The day invites artist to get to know Doodle Dance better with opportunities to join the team as well as developing their own practice though creative inquiry, artist support session and to consider their self as Artists as Activists.

18th September 2023

A day to share in the joy of celebrating our achievements so far in ‘leading to a curious world’ ACE funded project whilst reaching out to other dance/movement artists who maybe interested in getting involved with Doodles work!

Doodle works in 3 key areas (Primary School delivery, Artists Support and Sustainable Action for children and their communities) and therefore wants to offer a Playtime that shares insights, CPD, support and discussion around these, meeting the needs of attendees, connecting to freelancers and collaborators for new work as well as creating a platform for future networking and Artist support events.

The day is aimed at south coast dance/movement artists however we are happy for artists out of this area to attend, benefiting from the CPD and discussion. The event is open to artists at all stages of their career: new graduates, merging artists, artists making a career shift or established artists.

The day is part funded so we can offer a teered fee (£7, £10, £15) enabling it to be accessible for all. We do ask you value the investment of the day and pay what you can.
