Each participant will attend a minimum of one (1) workshop or up to four (4) online workshops ($200 honorarium per session, per person) on the three themes and engage in conversations on Discord after each session. During each session, you will work with dancers and performance Artists at Nova Dance and the digital strategy team at UKAI Projects to shape Reconnections — Body/Heart/Mind, a digital platform, through the following values:

  • Care & Friendship
  • An invitation to trust
  • Play
  • Mediation (bringing people together/on the same page)
  • Processing Self-Acceptance
  • Forgiveness
