Movement Research Town Hall meeting
November 5, 2012 6:30-9:30pm
Joyce Soho, First Floor
155 Mercer St. (Manhattan)
Join Movement Research for the third annual Artist Advisory Council-hosted Town Hall. This year, living in the worst economic environment of most of our lifetimes, we ask ourselves: How does the current climate affect our lives and artistic work, and vice versa? What creative insights and understandings, structures and alternatives, have manifest during this time of financial challenge? We will gather to share and articulate our perspectives and personal experiences through the recession and see how they can have material, theoretical and practical repercussions within our community and beyond.
This three year Strategic Plan establishes goals from Movement Research in Fiscal Years 2008-2010. The plan was developed over a three-year period by the Board of Directors under the direction of former Executive Director Carla Peterson (2002-2006). A draft of the plan was written in summer 2006 by Peterson and staff. The plan was finalized and published in summer 2007 under Executive Director Barbara Bryan.
