Thread Name: Who is/ are the EFDSS?
Subject: RE: efdss,what does it mean
YOU SAY,Perhaps EFDSS regional partnerships,when they arise could encourage these kind of activities as part of their remit.
the business side comes through increased membership.,and hopefully more use of the societies facilities[ its a mistake to think immigrants may not be interested in english folk song and dance as well as their own]
there might be a reason why they should be drawn to efdss, if they were welcomed,.
efdss has to hold out the welcoming hand[your idea of regional partnerships is a step in the right direction],their musical culture has to be respected and promoted[not as a core aim of the society but as a more minor aim].,
John Adams, said that efdss was not in a financial predicament,therefore it enjoys some security,WHY not start in this direction in a small way and gradually expand the idea,particuarly if there are grants available.
