Dance Connections in Herts & Beds
BEEE Creative is a small arts charity working across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. We connect artists, practitioners and cross-sector partners to optimise opportunities for people to access and enjoy the benefits of dance.
Simply put we want people to have the chance to take part in dance at any stage of life, whatever their personal circumstances, in a way the works best for them. BEEE Creative stands for social change by addressing barriers to participation and producing high quality, ambitious and insightful dance co-produced with local people.
To make this happen we value the extensive collaboration with artists, partners and communities and the part everyone we work with has to play.
Our projects service the local dance sector as a whole, enhancing future dance productivity across the county by investing in people at all levels. We commission professional, nationally recognised artists to work with our local communities in new and ambitious ways but equally facilitate conversation and sharing of good practice, skills development and employ local dance practitioners who are essential in reaching out into communities.
Our approach to unlocking local potential is to be grounded in the place we work and customising our activity and support to best serve those we work with. So our network of county and district council representatives, multi-stakeholders and funders and wider network of cultural, education, community and health organisations partners, is fundamental to the way we function.
