Dance Collection Danse serves to collect, preserve, research, interpret and exhibit artifacts and archival records that reflect and document the history of theatrical dance in Canada and contribute to an understanding of artists, activities, events, institutions, organizations and individuals relevant to the history of theatrical dance in Canada.
The decision to accept a collection is made by the DCD Collections Committee and will depend on:
a) its relevance to the history of theatrical dance in Canada
b) its relevance to other artifacts and records in the collection
c) its condition
d) its exhibit and research potential and
e) Dance Collection Danse's ability to maintain the collection in a safe and secure environment.
The collection must be representative of theatrical dance in Canada and priority will be given to artifacts and archival records associated with key periods, events, places, organizations, institutions, businesses and individuals.
For donations of artifacts and archival records, please contact Amy Bowring, Director of Collections and Research, at .
