Sangam Labs is based on research collaboration and artistic exchange through the application of co-design, peer-to-peer mentoring & knowledge sharing. The most recent iteration of the Labs was Sangam Conversations: Reimagining Contemporary Dance as Multidisciplinary Holistic Art. Two free conversations were held at Dancehouse in May 2023 with South Asian choreographers, leaders and artists sharing their dance practices, challenges, successes and their relationship to the contemporary. These free events and dialogues were the culmination of a week-long artist lab in Dandenong (Walker Street Gallery). The Lab included dialogues, debates, labs and residencies for artists and leaders to strengthen leadership skills, and to provide a community to share ideas and engage in culturally safe South Asian led practices. Sangam Conversations and Sangam Labs are supported by Dancehouse with support of the Sidney Myer Fund, Creative Victoria, Blakdance, City of Greater Dandenong, Drum Theatre and Insite Arts.
