Supported Artists

Our Supported Artists are companies and individuals with whom we have agreed to invest time and resource to develop a more meaningful relationship – one that benefits the artist, ourselves and our learning and achievements together. We share a vision and our values play a central role in our relationship:

Kind; Passionate; Inclusive and Inspiring.

We support artists in various ways, including financial support, space at Pavilion Dance, our beautiful dance house by the sea; and through on-going conversations and connections. We also offer small commissions for work that meet with our artistic vision, consider alternative presentation contexts and have the audience at the heart of the creative process.
