Laban Guild Northern Region Network
The Hodgson Collection: Study Day
12:00 to 18:00, Saturday 8 July 2017
at the University of Leeds, LS2 9JT.
The Northern Region Network is made up of its members in Yorkshire, the North East, North West and Scotland. The focus of this First Study Day is the John Hodgson Archive which is housed in Special Collections in the Leeds University Brotherton Library. There will be an opportunity to learn about this Collection and how to access and use it, in the context of a growing dance and movement archive in the University, together with practical classes relating to this Collection. Presentations and classes will be led by Tim Procter (Special Collections, University of Leeds), Dr Clare Lidbury (University of Wolverhampton) and Dick McCaw (Royal Holloway, University of London). This event also provides an opportunity for members to meet with others in the Region. It is also open to all members of the Laban Guild and other people interested in the work of Rudolf Laban, Kurt Jooss and Sigurd Leeder.
A Second Study Day is being planned for November 2017 at the University of Carlisle.
Members £30, non-members £50. Further details from Bobbie Millar, Northern Region Representative, 07740 941950 or bobbie@bobbiemillar.com.
