#MeToo for dance professionals in Berlin: a workshop
The #MeToo movement has encouraged important shifts in discourses surrounding sexual harassment in the dance field, but relatively little has been discussed in the context of the independent Berlin scene. In this 3-hour workshop, Ilse Ghekiere (BE, Engagement Arts) and Robyn Morg Doty (USA/DE, Whistle While You Work) will discuss their experiences in establishing tools for dance professionals dealing with sexual harassment in the workplace. On the basis of small-group discussions of case studies, participants will learn what avenues of support are available for dance professionals working in Berlin. Collectively, we will discuss what blind spots still exist and how they can be remedied.
When: August 18, 2019, 10 am – 1 pm
Where: Uferstudio 6
The workshop will be held free of charge.
Places in the workshop are limited to 20, to secure your place please register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
