DOTE Magazine is an initiative of Dancing on the Edge to share, think, and wonder together. We want to research and provide context and more depth around issues and topics that feel urgent to us. We invite you to join with texts, images, videos, scores, drawings and ideas. We want to tell multiple stories and widen perspectives round discourses of (performing) arts, Europe and West Asia and North Africa, migration and diaspora, sustainable programming and collectivity. We try to build communities. If you want to contribute to DOTE Magazine please contact us on pr[at]dancingontheedge.nl
