Experimental dance school seeks architect for new £10m home

  • Comment

Experimental dance organisation Dance4 has launched the search for an architect to design its proposed new Nottingham Creative Village

The complex, estimated at £10 million, will incorporate a home for Dance4 (including dance studios, offices, cafe) and business units for other creative firms.

It will be located on a city council-owned piece of land in Sneinton adjacent to a market, on the east side of the city, part of the Eastside regeneration area. The complex is not intended as a performance space or venue, rather to act as a production space for home-grown and international artists.

According to a notice in the Official Journal of the European Union, the initial designs will have a fee budget of £15,000. It is hoped the architect will ‘then act as lead architect on the capital programme (capital costs estimated at £10million) subject to funding being secured and architect performance’.

Rachel Emmett, general manager of Dance4 said: ‘A building like this on a prominent site will help people recognise the strength of the creative industries in Nottingham. The city has had lots of capital investment projects recently like the Nottingham Contemporary art gallery, which is great, but projects like this that provide production space and facilities help support local practitioners and artists and help keep talent within the city’.
