Come to one or come to all!

*David Waller & Hanna Satterlee *
Storytelling for the Collective: Come reflect on aspects of your identity that inspired you to pursue the arts. Using an anthropological lens we will explore how we all engage in creative mediums through our experiences as people holding intersectional identities. Facilitator David Waller will use their experience as a non-binary person of color with a hearing deficiency, to model the activity by discussing how their identities have informed the way that they engage with music, movement, and writing. Participants will explore their own identities and experiences, listen and reflect on the stories of others, and engage in a movement exploration of their own personal learnings. Participants who join this conversation will be given materials to be able to facilitate this workshop for others in their social and professional circles. Open to dancers and non-dancers alike.
Privileged Perspectives, Round 2!
We know dance is a form of activism. Let's dig in to some questions many of us have asked ourselves of late.. What kind of voice do I bring to the social justice table? How can I create dance that makes a difference, that fights for what I believe in? What considerations are important to take as a non-BIPOC Vermonter? How can I change the way I share dance in the pursuit of anti-racism?
*Jessie Owens + Matt LaRocca*
How are you dancing right now? How are you working with the parameters you’ve been given? What inspires you? Join us for a conversation and idea swap about making dances and performances and collaborating with other artists in these times. Connect with other artists through your shared desires. Open to everyone: dancers inspired to create, dancers in the process of creating, dance enthusiasts interested in an inside perspective on the creation process, artists and service providers looking to support artists in their work.
