Sean Dorsey (Artistic Director, Fresh Meat Productions & Sean Dorsey Dance) and Robin Anderson (Executive Director, AXIS Dance Company) have co-organized and will co-host a national conversation breakout session at the 2019 APAP (Association of Performing Arts Professionals) Conference.
This JOINING FORCES session will feature Alice Sheppard (Artistic Director, Disability Dance Works), Deja Smith (Co-Director, DDPRO), Mark Travis Rivera (Artistic Director, marked dance project), Sean Dorsey (Artistic Director, Fresh Meat Productions & Sean Dorsey Dance) and Robin Anderson (Executive Director, AXIS Dance Company).
Presenters, artists, programmers, cultural leaders, activists, funders, and friends: join a conversation about building solidarity as we fight for racial justice, disability justice and trans justice in the performing arts. What does creating “access” really mean? How do we move beyond a “diversity” framework with its accompanying check-boxes and tokenism? How do we invest in truly empowered leadership? Let’s JOIN FORCES!
