SLMDances is a New York City based dance-theater collective that works in communities to organize for gender and racial justice. In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr, SLMDances’ creative partners and artistic director Sydnie Mosley will offer a three-hour workshop open to students, faculty, staff and administrators.

Coalition Building and Collaboration:
Aligned with MLK Jr.’s vision for racial equity, in this workshop SLMDances’ will share the praxis of self-development, community building, strategic vision, decolonized organization building, and the embodiment of our collective values: HUMANITY, DREAMING, COMMUNITY, TRANSPARENCY, LEARNING, and ACTIVISM. We will offer you creative works, stories, and resources that have supported our journey to creating a values-centered, mission-oriented collective in which leadership and labor is shared, and members feel whole, valued, and cared for. Our practices offer tenacity in artistic, cultural, and movement organizing work.

This is hands on learning (not a dance class). All bodies, abilities and backgrounds welcome! Bring your class, attend with colleagues, join by yourself. Limited space, pre-register here
