Organisational Development Project
Dance Manchester is delighted to announce that it has appointed Grand Visionary Solutions to work on its Organisational Development Project. Grand Visionary Solutions won the contract following proposals from a strong and highly competitive field of established and experienced consultants.

Grand Visionary Solutions (GVS), marries the expertise of June Gamble and Gwen Van Spijk, who have over 55 years combined track record of visioning, creative thinking, strategic development and project delivery. Using a combination of practical processes, coaching and management tools, they deliver projects that are client-led and focused.

The project will connect with stakeholders, funders, partners & artists to identify and evidence need and opportunity for dance in Greater Manchester to inform the basis of Dance Manchester’s future plans. It will explore future opportunities for Dance Manchester to exploit its specialism in Dance for Place-making building on the legacy of the Urban Moves International Dance Festival which presented dance outdoors and in unusual spaces.

We would like to hear your voice as we develop our future plans. See links to our two short surveys below so you can contribute directly. Please note your answers will be treated confidentially and will go direct to GVS, not to Dance Manchester staff.
