Join Dance/NYC for the Immigrants. Dance. Arts Conference, a free, day-long series of convening presented in partnership with the New York City Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs and the Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College.

In a political climate that threatens the well-being of the more than three million immigrants in the New York City Area, the conference will gather leaders in dance and immigrant communities to consider the role of dance artistry in fostering the inclusion, integration, and human rights of local immigrants. This event builds on Dance/NYC research, and aims to deliver resources; instigate dialogue; foster peer learning and collective action; and encourage engagement, investment, program development to advance immigrant artists, and artistic activism.

The conference is a part of Dance/NYC’s Immigrants. Dance. Arts. Initiative. Please continue to visit Dance.NYC for initiative updates, and join the Immigrants. Dance. Arts. Network to receive information on immigrant dance activity in the New York City metropolitan area.
