IFACCA's latest D'Art research request comes from the Dance Board of the Australia Council, which is looking for information on successful policies and funding programs in the dance sector.

We expect the results may have broader international relevance. IFACCA will co-ordinate and report on the responses, so this is a great opportunity for dance funders and policymakers to share information on what works, and perhaps what doesn't!
