Fall Festival: Financial and Personal Wellness in Dance: A Panel Discussion
By Movement Research
November 30, 2016 A panel discussion moderated by Kay Takeda, Director of Grants & Services at Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Panelists: Aaron Mattocks, Juliana May, Katy Pyle, Antonio Ramos Since the development of the Dancers Compact from 1996 to 2002, multiple efforts have been undertaken in the field to better understand, support, and advocate for the needs of dance artists, and for the importance of self-care. This is an essential and ongoing issue for each dance artist and for the field as a whole. What are the approaches and practices that makers and dancers are developing to better sustain themselves and their collaborators, and what resources are out there for dance artists in NYC? Hear from artists Aaron Mattocks, Katy Pyle, Juliana May, and Antonio Ramos, who are each actively pursuing different ways to address these questions – and add your own experiences, ideas, and practices to the mix.
