Power in Motion is a benefit featuring pop-up performances by Sanctuary for Families’ Survivor Leaders and Gibney Dance Company. Join us as we celebrate the partnership of Sanctuary and Gibney and uplift voices of survivors of gender violence through the power of art and dance.
Wine and appetizers will be served.
Gibney is at the forefront of mobilizing the arts to address social justice issues. The organization’s highly respected programs use movement to transform lives through multiple platforms, including: Movement Workshops, which shares tools of choice, self-expression, collaboration and self-care with survivors of intimate partner violence; Hands are for Holding assemblies and residencies, which engage New York City youth on the topic of violence and bullying prevention; and Moving Toward Justice, which mobilizes artists to respond to social issues. Gibney values all that artists have to offer as makers, activists and entrepreneurs and allows these skillsets to flourish under one roof and reverberate back into the community.
Sanctuary for Families is dedicated to the safety, healing and self-determination of victims of domestic violence and related forms of gender violence. Through comprehensive services for our clients and their children, and through outreach, education and advocacy, we strive to create a world in which freedom from gender violence is a basic human right.
