Dance/NYC’s 2016 Symposium will invite participants to consider connections between the art form of dance and New York City and explore urgent questions of cultural planning, affordability, equity and inclusion, public-private partnerships, and the future of technology. How can New Yorkers, by working together and across sectors, act now to advance the art form and more than 1,200+ dance makers and companies in the metropolitan area? And how can the art form contribute to the future of all New Yorkers?
As the only full-day gathering of the dance community in the metropolitan area, the Symposium aims to share information and innovation and to stimulate awareness, interest, and ongoing engagement in dance. The Symposium will make use of multiple studios for panel discussions, case studies, interactive workshops, a networking lunch, and more.
