Judy Dworin Performance Project

Moving for Change Since 1989.

As we continue to confront COVID-19 and embrace the anti-racism call to action spurred by the terrible death of George Floyd, Judy Dworin Performance Project (JDPP) is committed internally and externally to use the arts in fresh ways to express and communicate both what has been, and a responsive vision of what can be. As we continue to find new ways to reach out to our program participants and the larger community, we do so knowing that the power of the arts keeps us grounded, connected and resilient. Through our social media platforms, we are providing arts activities and participatory viewing experiences that release the imagination, bring further awareness to critical issues, and encourage thoughtful and healing participation. We do this celebrating the dignity of all, the wisdom of the body, the deep reflective capacity of the mind and the belief that the arts are key in supporting our wellbeing. We continue to deeply re-examine and reimagine knowing that in our dimmest moments the arts provide light, inspiration and hope. We are now and always...Moving with and for Change. Join us!!
