The DFD Arts & Social Justice Retreat is a one day retreat designed to bring together arts activists who are passionate about creating socially equitable artistic spaces and experiences. This retreat was derived from the DFD’s Time to Talk Initiative, which in conjunction with the choreographic work, provides the community with resources and ways to take immediate and long-term action. The newest phase of the initiative, Time to Talk with Davalois Fearon, is a discursive series created by Artistic Director Davalois Fearon that highlights structural racism within dance, academia, and society at large. This multidisciplinary series utilizes both arts and informed discourse to educate audiences on the many racial disparities that take place socially, environmentally, and academically.
The retreat will take place Saturday April 16th 10am-1pm EDT via the Davalois Fearon Dance Virtual Theater. Register here!
