Arts Council of Great Britain: records, 1928-1997


Series description

Series title: National Resouce Centre for Dance Material: Dance Department Files, Third Deposit, 1979-1989
Reference: ACGB/127
Extent: 40 items

Context

The items in this series were formerly held at the National Resource Centre For Dance (NRCD) at the University of Surrey in Guildford. Between the mid-1980s and July 1990, the NRCD received four deposits of material from the Dance Department of the Arts Council. These records were transferred to the V&A Museum in January 2003.

These records have not been re-integrated with the other records of the Arts Development Division of the Arts Council. Instead, they have been retained as a separate "National Resource Centre for Dance" sub-group of the archive, in order to reflect their separate custodial background.

Scope and content

These records have been catalogued in accordance with the box lists drawn up by the NRCD. The original box references have been included in the items' descriptions.

This series contains files relating to companies, other associations/organisations and Regional Arts Associations.

For more information relating to the Dance Department, see also ACGB/27 and ACGB/28. These series contain all the papers which relate to client funding. For the Dance Department's relationship with and funding of the regions and Regional Arts Associations, see ACGB/25. See ACGB/26 for the minutes and papers of various Committees and Panels (some of which were responsible for decisions relating to client funding). Finally, see ACGB/125, ACGB/126 and ACGB/128 for further records deposited with the National Resource Centre for Dance.

The items in this series have retained the original order of the NRCD's box lists.
