What does it mean to belong? Explore the feeling of belonging during this hourlong movement workshop with choreographer and educator Jenny Oliver. Through dance games and drawing, we will reflect on, embody and express the experience of belonging. No previous movement or dance experience necessary. We all move all the time, therefore everybody – and every body – is welcome!

Take action by designing your pledge to fight climate change. We will weave together our individual pledges to create a community “mural” representing our commitment to community and environmental wellness.
