Movement Research is one of the world's leading laboratories for the investigation of dance and movement-based forms. Valuing the individual artist, their creative process and their vital role within society, Movement Research is dedicated to the creation and implementation of free and low-cost programs that nurture and instigate discourse and experimentation. Movement Research strives to reflect the cultural, political and economic diversity of its moving community, including artists and audiences alike.
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.
