See Chicago Dance (SCD) hosts quarterly convenings to foster dialogue among artistic directors, independent artists, administrators, and funders. As many companies lack funds to seek outside assistance, SCD provides invaluable peer networking opportunities. All SCD convenings are free and open to all members and non-members.

Stay tuned, more information about our next convening to come!
