In addition to the specific cultural-political consultation on the development of project partnerships that is part of TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund, the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland (Umbrella Association for Dance in Germany / DTD) is also stepping up its cultural-political dialogue with cities, federal states and the federal government. The aim is to strengthen and further develop both existing and new funding instruments and structures for dance.
In this endeavour, the DTD is working closely with local actors and the relevant departments in Cultural Offices at municipalities and federal state ministries. It is offering advice on all questions about dance locally and using its expertise to support the collaboration between cultural administration, politics and dance scenes.
In municipalities and federal state parliaments, the DTD is providing information on the artistic potential of dance and its impact in society, i.e. in cultural education, science and creative industries.
The DTD will continue to co-ordinate the Tanzförderung Stadt Land Bund dance-promotion initiative in which representatives of cultural administrations and authorities at the municipal, federal state and national level exchange information, experience and ideas.
