Creative Convening: Moving Racial Equity Forward Through the Arts

Dance Exchange breaks boundaries between stage and audience, and theater and community. For 38 years, we have been stretching the range of contemporary dance through bringing ideas into action. We are partnering with Dallas Faces Race to ask how communities can use creative strategies to advance racial equity, in Dallas and beyond. This workshop will engage participants in personal reflection and making creative responses to explore and question the structural roles of race and racism. We will focus on the work required across generations to undo racism, and move towards a more equitable future.

Speakers: Cassie Meador, Paloma McGregor
