Sarah and I met in picturesque Angers, France (see below) at the 2014 World Dance Alliance Global Summit. At this time I was in that painful write-up phase of my PhD and spent most of the conference waiting for someone to notice the imposter that I was! I needed to find ‘my people’, fellow research students who I could relate to. Once I found them, I realised that I wasn’t the only one looking for this community.
Fast forward to now and ECR Community has launched a newsletter! As the community grows, we hope to expand our activities to better connect, support and develop our community through:
- professional development, mentoring and networking opportunities,
- peer support, and
- information sharing.
