Anti-Racism in Dance Series

In 2021, Bridge Live Arts partnered with a team of inspiring artists and activists to present the Anti-Racism in Dance Series, featuring events and media dedicated to anti-racism in the performing arts. Through a blend of dialogue, storytelling, and embodied practices, the series offered supportive spaces for Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC), People of Color (POC), and White Allies to deepen their practice of anti-racism in the context of the dance field. All series events took place online via Zoom.
