ABOUT LAST DANCE
Last Dance is a programme of research and UK-wide events that will examine the creative and social impact of the decline of clubs and live venues, led by influential Grime DJ, radio presenter and promoter Elijah.
Last Dance is supported by Arts Council England’s Change Makers Fund, which seeks to increase the diversity of senior leaders in arts and culture. Elijah will receive mentoring and professional development, connecting with partners, festivals and institutions in the UK and internationally, building skills and expertise alongside the Lighthouse team throughout the programme.
