It starts with a conversation is an online publication of a guide jointly written by producers Ása Richardsdóttir and Lene Bang Henningsen. The guide was first written for the Nordic contemporary dance community and addressed to artists and producers who want to work collaboratively and internationally. This handy and interactive guide offers the reader a variety of professional development tools, as well as interesting insights into the various stages of an artist's or producer's career. The co-authors will host a workshop for emerging artists and producers to fuel a conversation that can be a source of inspiration for the next steps of a creative work.
