East London Dance's 30th anniversary celebrations conclude with the return of the Ideas Summit.

On Friday 29 March 2019 East London Dance will host a full day of curated talks, conversations, provocations and networking at Stratford Circus Arts Centre.

Back for its third edition the Ideas Summit offers a chance for you to plug into east London’s vibrant community of dance professionals; to meet your fellow dance artists, producers and industry peers in the flesh; and to network and make connections across all areas of the dance sector.

Led and facilitated by Anamaria Wills and Jeanefer Jean-Charles the day will include presentations and discussions exploring:

  • Changes in the East London cultural landscape
  • How to build an enterprising and sustainable career in dance
  • How to turn your ideas into reality

This year’s Summit will include a host of inspiring speakers, including keynote speakers Simon Mellor, Deputy Chief Executive, Arts & Culture, Arts Council England and Kymberlee Jay, Business Coach and creator of “Built for it Bootcamp’ as well as representatives from East London Dance, English National Ballet, Sadler’s Wells, Studio Wayne McGregor, Boy Blue Entertainment and Avant Garde Dance Company all giving updates about their ongoing work in east London.
