Urban Bush Women presented the 2017 Summer Leadership Institute Culminating Performances livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound.TV network Saturday 5 July at 5:00 p.m. EDT (New York) / 4:00 p.m. CDT (Chicago) / 2:00 p.m. PDT (Los Angeles) and 7:30 p.m. EDT (New York) / 6:30 p.m. CDT (Chicago) / 4:30 p.m. PDT (Los Angeles).

UBW will continue building its roots in the NYC community with a Manhattan-based SLI! UBW often uses the movement metaphor of Core & Distal to talk about our dance practice as well as our community engagement practice. As we teach in our Entering, Building and Exiting Community (EBX) workshop, engaging our core—our own bodies, identities and communities—is essential for maintaining clarity and stability as we engage the distal—other bodies, identities and communities.

This summer we revisited our theme from 2016 - You, Me, We: Understanding Internalized Racial Oppression and How it Manifests in Our Artistic Community. The urgency of addressing racial oppression is a clarion call to our arts community. Together we examined Internalized Racial Oppression as it manifests both for People of Color and White people and how these manifestations show up in our organizing, creations and collaborations. How do we move forward together to make our voices heard and create powerful counter-narratives to what will are experiencing? Does our work challenge or recreate dominant frameworks and systems of policing that ignore history, culture, power and lineage? How can we explode predetermined expectations, restore our full humanity and activate our true strength? At You, Me, We - we will find our individual and collective power together!
