Performing Arts and Disability: Leadership, Inclusion, and Training Symposium
The BU Arts Initiative, Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, The BU Dance Program, and BU Disability Services host the critically acclaimed AXIS Dance Company for a residency March 13-18, 2017. AXIS Dance Company was founded in 1987 and has paved the way for a powerful contemporary dance form called physically integrated dance, which features dancers with and without disabilities.
As a part of this residency, we invite you to join us for a symposium featuring regional artists, activists, and arts leaders participating in a panel discussion and break out conversations. The panel will be moderated by Charles Washburn, Vice President and COO of VSA Massachusetts, the State Organization on Arts and Disability.
Symposium co-sponsors include HowlRound (who will livestream key parts of the symposium), VSA Massachusetts, the New England Foundation for the Arts, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, StageSource, Boston Dance Alliance and Cultural Access New England (CANE).
