The work is part of the Mayor‘s new Cultural Infrastructure Plan to establish what London needs to sustain and develop culture to 2030. The project is gathering intelligence on dance premises, support networks, affordability and accessibility in order to better understand the key opportunities, threats and challenges facing London’s dance sector.
