Créations Hit The Floor is proud to present its brand new expert committee. For the organization, the personal development of the dancers is a priority. The creation of an expert committee will ensure an ongoing dialogue between the experts, HTF and the community. The main role of the committee will be to guide the organization and to make thoughtful decisions for the development of an inclusive community of artists.
The expert committee will be composed of five (5) professionals and cultural workers. Each expert will act as an advisor to the organization but must also guide HTF to make a stand as an organization on subjects and issues that require continuous reflection and support.
Discussions between experts will be possible through gatherings, at different times during the year (2). These gatherings could be held as private retreats, videoconferences or any other type of session that would lead to collective exchanges and creative synergy.
Bringing together key players in its industry, the expert committee should listen to the community, issues, and opportunities in the arts and culture industry, while respecting and contributing to the values of HTF.
