THE GOALs 


SHARING: Conferences are platforms for global changemakers to share how dance and movement are utilized within international development, social change and peace building programming.

ENGAGING: The events will create a clear and accessible space for the global field of dance and social justice while simultaneously building a community of passionate, curious and engaged practitioners and supporters.

PROMOTING: Through this space and community, Free Body Project will promote the use of dance and movement within international development practices, programs and policies. This space will also allow donors to better understand how and why dance and movement are powerful resources, further benefitting dance and social justice organizations.
