Hyvinvoivan Taidetanssin tuki ry is a registered association founded in 2018 by young Helsinki based artists IIRIS LAAKSO, AMEL SIHVONEN and SAILA PÖNKÄ. They have a quest to create more safer spaces in the field on art, dance and performance where the operators’ wellbeing is a priority. They wish to create bridges over the gap between dance enthusiasts/hobbyists and professionals. They want to grow in consciousness of structures and behavioral patterns that no longer serve us and the field’s needs and thus create alternative options to those structures.
