Dance/NYC 2020 Symposium
Dance/NYC’s 2020 Symposium will consider 21st century models for building a resilient and thriving dance ecosystem. It will invite participants to investigate topics of labor organizing; transformative justice; dance education in a changing political climate; and the business of dance-making, among others.
As the only gathering of its kind for the dance community in the metropolitan New York City area, the Symposium aims to share information, innovation, and to stimulate awareness, interest, and ongoing engagement in dance and dance education. The 2020 Symposium will be hosted campus-style and make use of Hunter College’s expanding dance facilities and performance spaces for panel discussions, case studies, interactive workshops, a networking lunch, and more.
