1MOVE: DES19NED BY... is a designer-driven project where the designer acts with absolute freedom as the lead artist to create digital content in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Co-curated with Tony Award-winning costume and scenic designer Clint Ramos and lighting designer Cha See, The Movement commissioned 15 early career designers to dream big in this digital space. Each commissioned designer received $500. A second round of commissions, co-curated by Paul Tazewell, Dede Ayite and Stacey Derosier, will be announced later this summer.

Born out of a need to swiftly respond to the many human rights and social issues continuously affecting their communities, 1MOVE is The Movement's digital content series dedicated to creating a brave multi-disciplinary space for their artists and communities to create, respond to, and engage with the current issues affecting their world today. 1MOVE launched in January 2017 with INFINITE: In a "Trump America", which featured musician Corey Wallace, actor/singer Janelle McDermoth, and writer/performer Yadira De La Riva. As the theater world faces the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Movement is relaunching 1MOVE with DES19NED BY... to provide a digital space for designers to create and process.

Support for 1MOVE is made possible by the artEquity Artist + Activist Community Fund. To donate to the initiative and continue supporting the extraordinary work of these emerging designers and future artist opportunities, please visit:
