DETROIT - Dance is the focus of this season's opening "All Means All" program, as Living Arts co-director Cara Graninger hosts a unique "DanceAbility" workshop that includes a movement improvisation exercise for both abled and differently abled participants.
The workshop takes place Thursday, Sept. 20 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Ford Center for Arts & Learning, located at 1526 Broadway St. in Downtown Detroit. Food, conversation, and films featuring dance will also be included throughout the evening.
The "All Means All" programs are designed to bring together cultural and community activists and community members for the purpose of creating an important dialogue designed to give meaning to inclusive culture, disability participatory justice and foster understanding between those with and without disabilities. The programs lead audience participants to explore the concepts of the arts and disability culture. Inclusive culture is rooted in the belief that all people have creativity, dignity and voice, and that a truly inclusive culture creates opportunities for this beautiful diversity to be celebrated and shared.
The event space is completely accessible, and an ASL translator and audio describer will be in attendance. This "All Means All" event has been made possible with support from the Michigan Disability Rights Coalition, the Jewish Fund, and Met Life.
The suggested donation is $5 - $10.
