About: Join Dance/NYC as we round out the #ArtistsAreNecessaryWorkers series and circle back to our initial prompt – that dance work is labor that should be valued. Since our campaign launched on May 14th the world has shaken and in that upheaval even more emphasis has been placed on arts workers across disciplines to lead change. For this final conversation, we hear from speakers across this ecology about the shifts that they have witnessed or instigated and how we can continue to advocate for #danceasdignifiedlabor as a field.
