The next NOBA network meeting is soon upon us and we hope to see as many of you as possible at Showbox in Oslo! 

Network meeting at Showbox, December 5th.
As we wrote in the last newsletter the next network meeting will be held in Oslo on December 5th during Scenekunstbrukets festival Showbox. The topic for this meeting is Quality and Aesthetics. What do we mean by the concepts quality and aesthetics? How do we relate to this? How do you form your own judgement? What kind of geographical and cultural differences are there? Is it possible that aesthetics may influence the evaluation of quality? This is an ongoing discussion and a comprehensive question, but it is a very relevant discussion indeed. We aim at a dialogue seminar with short presentations, followed by questions from the audience. The meeting is free of charge, open to everyone and will be rounded off with food and socializing!

Online survey form
We have just launched an online survey addressed to professional dance groups and choreographers producing dance for children and young audiences in the Nordic-Baltic countries. The aim is to create an online catalogue of Nordic-Baltic dance performances, companies and choreographers creating dance for young audiences hosted on the NOBA web site. Please help us build this online catalogue and fill out this survey or help us spread this to whomever it may concern!
