Conceived by choreographer Camille A. Brown, The Gathering will serve as an open forum for intergenerational black female artists to support one another and to advocate for greater cultural equity and acknowledgement in the contemporary dance world. As trendsetters and pioneers who merit more widespread public recognition for their innovations, this evolving group of black choreographers will meet regularly to examine the reasons for this precedent and to embark on a mission to make their work more broadly accessible and appreciated. The Gathering will harness its collective voices and talents to advocate for enhanced visibility in the dance world; increased understanding of essential arts administrative tools and skills for success; growth in public exposure, celebration, and notoriety of past and future artists and works of note; and paving of a more vibrant, unbiased, and sustainable future for the next generation of choreographers.
The Gathering will catalyze the support of its community to strengthen the awareness and deepen the impact of black dance on the greater dance field. Ultimately, The Gathering’s collaborative advocacy will enhance the visibility, understanding, exposure, celebration, notoriety, and sustainability of prolific, intergenerational African diaspora female choreographers, leading to more widespread acceptance, appreciation, and publicity in American and global society.
