Dance/NYC’s 2015 Symposium will invite participants to consider opportunities for "rising together" and dive deep into questions of cultural equity, resilience, technology, and private sector practices. How can we, by working together and across sectors, advance the art form and more than 1,200+ dance makers and companies in the metropolitan area? And how can dance and New York City work as one? 

The Symposium will make use of multiple studios for panel discussions, case studies, interactive workshops, a networking lunch, and more. Highlights include discussions of advocacy moderated by Kerry McCarthy of The New York Community Trust; education moderated by Jody Gottfried Arnhold with Ana Nery Fragoso, new Director of Dance at the NYC Department of Education; technology with choreographer Sydney Skybetter; and race and dance moderated by Tammy Bormann of Urban Bush Women and Carlton Turner of Alternate ROOTS, curated by Amy Fitterer of Dance/USA and Michelle Ramos-Burkhart, former Dance/NYC director.

Dance/NYC also partners with the Arts and Cultural Consultants Network (ACCN) and arts and entertainment attorneys volunteering through the Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law and Intellectual Property Sections (EASL) of the New York State Bar Association for one-on-one legal, financial, and management consultations.

Gibney Dance Center is an accessible venue. Wheelchair ramps and elevators are available via the 280 Broadway entrance. If you require reasonable accommodation please contact Rachel Berman at rberman@dancenyc.org at least two weeks prior to this event.

Leadership support is provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Symposium is also supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and from the National Endowment for the Arts.
