ICAF 2017

The last edition of ICAF took place from 29 March to 2 April 2017 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The theme of ICAF 2017 was MOVEMENT! Beforehand, we specifically scouted in Brazil for inspiring examples of how modern dance is literally used to make a difference in the life of underprivileged young people. In our thinking, ‘movement’ could mean many things, including dance in, with and for communities. But it could as well refer to movement in terms of gesture and communication beyond the purely verbal. You could also think of the link between community art and activism, or community art itself as an international movement of which ICAF is an integral part.
