Tiffany Rea- Fisher will be making the opening remarks.
Join Dance/NYC and the Harlem Arts Alliance for our upcoming town hall, Dance Artistry and Advocacy in the Harlem Arts Community. In light of the recent release of The City of New York’s first ever cultural plan, CreateNYC, and our nation’s political climate, the town hall will address the ever-present narrative of racial inequity and under-representation within arts institutions and its impact on Harlem’s dance community. Panelists will tackle the question: “What is the role of the Harlem dance community in addressing racial equity and in using their artistry for advocacy, in our current political climate?” and propose strategies to address racial equity within the Harlem dance community. The evening meeting will also feature a performance, honor awards, and a networking and service fair connecting dancers, choreographers, dance companies and members of arts organizations.
