MADC presents Collective Thread

The Collective Thread Residency is an extension of MADC's annual Collective Thread Dance Festival. The residency is an incubator for women/womyn identifying dancers & choreographers of color ages 18+ to hone their technical skills and creative practices to develop new work through journaling, round table discussions, and movement based classes as a form of self-care.


The purpose of the residency is to provide artists access to resources to assist in strengthening their creative voices. This residency will give women/womyn identifying people of color permission to heal in a safe, open space, the opportunity to share and strengthen their often silenced voices through dance, and create a platform for communities of color to have more accessibility and exposure to the kind of art that reflects their rich and varied histories and cultures.
