Keep Derby Dancing flash mob

As you may be aware, under current City Council proposals, Déda will receive cuts to its current grant funding of 85% over the next three years with nothing whatsoever in the fourth year. This places this thriving community arts organisation at high risk. We think Déda is a unique and crucial part of the city's cultural offer. We want to show the City Council that we disagree with their proposals and highlight the importance of Déda -- what better way to do that than by dancing! We would like to invite you to join in a special Flash Mob event at the Marketplace in Derby City Centre: Wednesday 23 November 5.30-6.00pm (dances will take place at 5.40 and 5.50pm) The Flash Mob will have a disco theme (remember Katie Green's brilliant Derby Festé Flash Mob!) and will include simple but striking choreography to really get us noticed. Rehearsals will take place at Déda on the following dates: Sunday 13 November 10am-12pm Sunday 13 November 12pm-2pm Sunday 20 November 10am-2pm Sunday 20 November 12pm-2pm If you are interested in being part of the Flash Mob please email Helen Dawson, Marketing and Programming Assistant at h.dawson@deda.uk.com, letting us know which rehearsal slots you would like to attend. Déda has limited capacity so please try and RSVP letting us know when you will be attending. http://www.deda.uk.com http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=260176087366258

Resident and Real - helping local artists to make accesible work

This is about supporting the home grown dance talent of the East Midlands for one year (April 2012 - March 2013), providing the conditions that an artist or company needs to develop into a fully fledged regional and national art-maker of distinction. You will be funding people to make new work that is both challenging and accessible, work that will engage people and speak to them in a real way. You will be able to closely follow their progress as they will be at Déda every day, as well as sharing with you the progress they are making.
