About the Format

In this circle conversation setting, we invite audiences to co-create and hold a scared space for women artists to talk our truth about the ways our creative acts connect us to community. Topics can range from dance as sacred act, art as living embodiment of community, and the necessity of kinship and relational accountability. Audiences are invited to sit in (live or virtual) circle with us and listen as we speak to each other, with open hearts, and open minds.
