Unapologetically Bridging Art & Social Justice

5:30 - 6:45pm MST

Virtual via Zoom

"Unapologetically Bridging Art & Social Justice”, a series sponsored by the Boulder County Arts Alliance and CU Boulder’s Office for Outreach and Engagement, brings together Black, Indigenous and Latinx artists from campus and the community.

CU Boulder Assistant Professor of Dance Helanius J. Wilkins and Holly Bass, a performance and visual artist, writer and director from Washington, D.C. will discuss how their identities and experiences shape their performance practices rooted in resilience and resistance.

This is a free event, but donations of $5, $10, or $15 are much appreciated.



Helanius premieres Dirt, a new dance for camera project in collaboration with visual designer and video editor, Roma Flowers, and featuring an original sound score composed and performed by Andy Hasenpflug. Through the fusion of text, movement, layered visuals, and sound, this work explores identity and Blackness in a heightened time of unrest and uprisings fueled by issues of police brutality and systemic racism in America.
