Open Meeting This Month
The AoCC held an Open Meeting:
February 24 3-5pm
Abrons Arts Center Studio G05

The AoCC's core Council meets once a month. This month's meeting will be open to the artists of color public. This is a chance to listen and add voices to the conversation as the Council moves forward with its mission. It is also the first step towards joining the core Council for those who are interested!
Each season the Movement Research AoCC invites a member of the community to curate artists to participate in Movement Research at the Judson Church. The Spring 2018 curator is Chloe C. Chotrani, who has curated Rina Casero Espiritu, Zavé Martohardjono and Jana Lynn (JL) Umipig, performing on February 12, 19 and May 7 respectively.
