We are excited to announce the Velocity Artist Think Tank is a part of the Fall 2020 initiative to plan for Velocity’s future. For over 20 years we have grown our community and built on the legacy of all the artists who have made this place. This Think Tank continues that practice by centering artists’ ideas, valuing them as thought leaders, and advocating for dance as an essential component of our city’s cultural vitality and as an exciting aspect of liberation. These Think Tank conversations will inform how Velocity responds to the community’s needs as well as inform the organization’s plans for the future as we continue implementing our mission to provide a platform that value’s liberation, connection, curiosity, and collaboration. Starting with incorporating their ideas into our updated vision, mission, and values, these artists’ input will be incorporated for future planning as we address the needs of our artists, in particular to BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ artists, in our programming, leadership, space use and distribution of our financial and other resources.
