(beta) Mutual Aid Hub | Vision
The Dance Union Mutual Aid Hub is a community project inviting the dance community to practice mutual aid. The vision of this project is inspired by the innovative online community and mutual aid network, Bed-Stuy Strong.
The dance industry is already working together to build brighter futures that includes comprehensive healthcare, liveable wages, and legislative power. In collaboration with these efforts, The Dance Union is offering the Mutual Aid Hub as a digital space for dance artists to practice meeting the local needs to help strengthen the connective fibers of our communities.
We invite organizers, administrators, movement practitioners, dancers and our neighbors to create this world with us– to provide support in an actionable way between November 28th and December 31st, 2023.
For this month we will be opening the hub to those that identify as organizers, administrators, dancers of the dance industry in NYC. The Hub will accept information and requests in the following areas: Jobs, Housing, Needs and Resources, Parent and Childcare, and Performance/Sharings/Workshops. Stay tuned for next season for additional services that'll be provided.
