Melissa Porter

I’m a dance fan, which comes in handy for the day job at Arts Council England.

Arts Council England champions, develops and invests in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people’s lives.

I am a Relationship Manager for Dance at Arts Council England, based in the West Midlands (currently on maternity leave).

I provide support for National Portfolio Organisations (including Birmingham Royal Ballet, DanceXchange, Motionhouse, ACE Dance & Music, Dancefest, Dance Consortium, Sonia Sabri Company and 2faced Dance Company), dance organisations, artists, producers, promoters and managers.

I provide advice on artistic and organisation development, funding and best practice in the arts. I connect individuals and organisations to encourage collaborative partnership working and support the region’s strong dance infrastructure.
