Danspace Project Values
We value artists and their encounters with others as necessary for the free exchange of ideas. We value audiences, as collectives and as individuals, who bear witness and respond to these encounters. We value those behind the scenes who support and facilitate this work.
We value an ongoing and active commitment to racial equity, inclusion, accessibility, and diversity in all its forms.
We value “the necessity of gathering in new formations as a vital process”* for connecting, creating, and thinking together.
We value asking questions in support of research, experimentation, and embodied knowledge.
We value listening as a practice of cultivating trust, respect, and deeper understanding.
We value resilience and the capacity for change in a challenging world.
