“IDMN provided all important peer support and exchange at a formative stage in my career. It proved an excellent forum (network) from which to connect into the wider sector whilst contributing to my CPD needs as I moved from artist to manager.”

Jamie Watton, CEO South East Dance

“I really value my IDMN membership and get more enquiries for work through my IDMN website profile than I do through my own personal website!”

Silke Arnold, IDMN Member

“As I took my first steps into freelance producing, the network gave me an invaluable insight into how other people work, what shifts and changes are happening within the sector and support through the understanding that I was not having to figure it all out on my own – others were happy to share their knowledge.”

Clara Giraud, IDMN Member
