This month sees the culmination of a two-year project at Siobhan Davies Dance, one of the country’s most distinctive dance companies.

The commissioned dance artists are Henry Montes, Sarah Warsop, Gill Clarke and Deborah Saxon who are partnered respectively with Marcus Coates, Tracey Rowledge and Lucy Skaer. Henry Montes and Deborah Saxon have also made a piece together with Bruce Sharp. Here, three of the visual artists relate their experiences.

Now, thirty one years later, we asked Dany Louise to do this research again, examining the current state of play for grants to individual artists as offered by Arts Council England, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Arts Council of Wales and Creative Scotland – including comparators of volumes of artists applying and success rates – and to ascertain whether a “fair share” has been getting into the hands of artists to develop their practice.
