ABOUT + THEMES
Each year, Free Body Project holds an event which convenes global leaders, founders, change makers, development practitioners, peace building professionals, artists, and activists all contributing to the advancement of social justice.
Our previous events covered the field at large. This year, we're focusing in on how dance addresses specific topics:
- gender equality
- racial equity
- international human rights
GRADUATE STUDENT PRESENTATIONS
For the first time, we are welcoming submissions to present current research or projects furthering the field of dance and social justice from graduate level and PHD candidates.
2 student presentations will be chosen and will have the opportunity to share their work and perspectives with conference attendees and featured speakers. Chosen students will receive a complimentary ticket to both days of the conference.
