About Think Inclusive
Think Inclusive is a full day of activities brought to you by Moving Art Management in collaboration with TIN Arts and Liberdade on behalf of the North East Inclusive Dance Network (NEIDN).

The morning is an important NEIDN Network Meeting to reflect upon, develop and celebrate the work of the network and its members. We are encouraging both new and existing members to attend to contribute to and inform the role of the network.

The afternoon is designed to give you a well-rounded insight into inclusive dance in the North East, with expertise from leading organisations and practitioners, looking at fundraising, a successful project case study, practical delivery ideas as well as an opportunity to meet peer artists, makers and producers who are part of the NEIDN network.
