Here & Now nurtures new relationships between artists making performance in England and international partners. 

We support world-class England-based artists working in live performance to showcase work at Edinburgh festivals, invite an aligned delegation of international presenters, and invest in the resulting mobility opportunities.  



Here & Now is delivered by FABRIC, BAC and GIFT, funded by Arts Council England. 


FABRIC is dance in the making, an organisation working with artists to create extraordinary dance to inspire people and places. We lead international projects, investing in artists international ambitions.


FABRIC leads on programme governance, delegate programmes and onward touring.
