Let’s start from the end

Our two-week residency at Dansateliers Rotterdam was a journey full of impulses, reflections, and interactions that gave us new ways of thinking about our work.

We started thinking about community engaged / based practices as…

  • spending time to find ways of relating to or interacting with people
  • a way of finding our own urgencies and our sense of belonging
  • a strategy to disperse power
  • a way of discovering and sharing joy
  • a way of being together
  • a way of writing new contracts
  • a way of recalibrating and remodeling ways in which we experience the world
  • a way to empower
  • a way of reconnecting – the roots of why we value being part of a community

We leave with lots of questions, some answers, and a basket full of food for thought.
