Louisa Norman – Programming Manager, Country Arts SA
BlakDance is an indispensable cultural voice within the national arts sector. Country Arts SA has benefited from events such as Dana Waranara, Blak Lines new work platform and the Global First Nations performance network. Learnings from those initiatives have had a direct influence on our organisational culture and programming. We have built a strong relationship with BlakDance over many years and we look forward to growing that in future to increase advocacy and capacity building for regional South Australian artists.
