EDA Learning Exchanges: Peer Guides

Dance/USA’s Engaging Dance Audiences
Learning Exchange 
Presentations, Handouts, and Videos

The following links will take to you to the documents, presentations and videos from the two EDA Learning Exchanges, which took place in the spring of 2012. The Learning Exchanges, and these materials, were designed to provide professional development about audience engagement, share lessons learned, and guide members in adapting methods to their own communities. Dance/USA members are strongly encouraged to peruse this information before applying to Round Two of EDA, or increase their general knowledge of audience engagement methods, even if they are not applying.

In addition to the materials below, prospective applicants should also review the EDA Profiles of the Grantees. That page provides links to brief descriptions of each project, along with additional products that were created by the grantees, and research findings about these projects.

Also, you can view videos of the EDA grantees as they speak about their projects. Visit: http://vimeo.com/danceusa/albums. For all eight grantees, you will find both short 4-6 minute highlights and a 30-minute presentation describing the nuts and bolts of the project. The powerpoints below are referenced in those videos, as are many of the written materials.

About the Presentations and Handouts Below
Round One grantees have prepared information that they feel is key to understanding their EDA project. This information include timelines, budgets, lessons learned, and/or staffing requirements, as well as other information such as lesson plans, program descriptions, and how-to guides.
