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!!

Every day all over the world, children are laughing and crying, playing and learning, eating and sleeping. They may not look the same. They may not speak the same language. Their lives may be quite different. But inside, they are all alike. Stirring words and bold paintings weave their way around our earth, across cultures and generations. At a time when, unfortunately, the lessons of tolerance still need to be learned, 'Whoever You Are' by Mem Fox, urges us to accept our differences, to recognize our similarities, and-most importantly-to rejoice in both. ...

Today we will be reading Smriti Prasadam-Halls' Rain Before Rainbows. In this heartfelt story about courage, change, and moving on, a girl and her companion fox travel together away from a sorrowful past, through challenging and stormy times, toward color and light and life. Along the way they find friends to guide and support them, and when the new day dawns, it is full of promise. ... See MoreSee Less
