Dance/NYC Announces #ArtistsAreNecessaryWorkers Conversation Series June 30 - Dance In Community

Dance/NYC moves into its seventh week of hosting a twelve-part Facebook Live Conversation Series with arts workers from across the arts and culture sector. These discussions highlight the importance of the arts ecology, point to current challenges and offer considerations on our way forward as a field. This series is a part of #ArtistsAreNecessaryWorkers, a new online and social media campaign dedicated to the acknowledgement, representation and integration of dance and arts workers into the decision-making processes that will envision the future for New York City post-pandemic.

The series launched successfully on Thursday, May 21, 2020, and will continue to take place every Tuesday from 5:30 - 7pm ET through August 4, 2020 on Dance/NYC's Facebook Page.

"We have learnt so much over the past few weeks in our discussions with many involved across the sector including individual dance makers, arts leaders, studio owners, dance educators and disability justice advocates who have given us their personal accounts of what this moment has required of them and the opportunity it has provided to consider new ways of operating. We hope to continue to synthesize these perspectives and channel this knowledge into our programming and advocacy efforts," said Alejandra Duque Cifuentes, executive director of Dance/NYC.
