 Signdance Collective - Next Generation Projects  Following the initial Art Council England Funded pilot, The Rothschild Foundation has funded the ''Signdance Next Generation Programmes.''
in 2022-2024; Deaf, Disabled and Diverse artists are training. They will continue to t
rain with the company, gaining touring, performance, workshop, and event development skills. The artist leadership team manages this program in collaboration with regional, national and international partners. With the "Next Generation Project" and the development of the SDC national engagement team, the company's public engagement area will grow. Between 2023 and 2026, the current touring company and the new team will allow SDC to reach many more groups across the UK. This group will deliver new engagement programs to schools and marginalized groups in the community, reaching Deaf and Disabled young people and their families traditionally excluded from the arts.
