CROWD – international dance exchange is a collaborative network of dance organisations, together seeking to support dance makers who engage with communities as part of their practice.

Through hosting residencies and opening up space for discussion and knowledge development, the programme aims to support dance artists with an established practice in community-engaged dance-making to build their professional network, exchange experience with others in the field and develop their practice.


CROWD international dance exchange was initiated by the Goethe-Institut in 2021 to forge connections between some of the leading dance institutions across Europe, explore and share practice within community-engaged dance and provide a platform for exchange and development for dance artists. It is funded by the Goethe-Institut, Arts Council England, NRW KULTURsekretariat, Nordisk Kulturfond and Creative Scotland.

Since the first residency programme last year which supported 6 artists, CROWD has grown to include more partners and artists, allowing the network to widen its reach and raise its ambition to explore, develop and share community-engaged dance.

The CROWD partnership is made up of the following partner organisations:
Bora Bora – Dance and Visual Theatre – Aarhus, Denmark | Dance Limerick – Limerick, Ireland | Dance4 – Nottingham, England | Davvi – Centre for Performing Arts – Hammerfest, Norway | Dansateliers – Rotterdam, Netherlands | Dansverkstæðið – Reykjavík, Iceland | Pottporus – Herne, Germany | TaikaBox – Oulu, Finland | TanzFaktur – Cologne, Germany | The Work Room – Glasgow, Scotland
