FREE BODY PROJECT Fundraiser and Film Screening

  • Covo 981 Mission Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

Around the world, powerful changemakers use dance and movement to push for social change. Unfortunately, this inspiring work is often overlooked. Not anymore. 

 

FREE BODY PROJECT is a San Francisco-based nonprofit building a field and network for dance and social justice. We bring support and visibility to global initaitives that use dance to empower youth, make mental health accessible, help survivors release trauma, and build peace after conflict. 

Join us for a special in-progress film screening and fundraiser supporting FREE BODY PROJECT's flagship program, The Dance + Social Justice Conference, coming up this March. 

 

About the Film

From There to Here is a short, dance + documentary film created by FREE BODY PROJECT in close collaboraiton with the survivors and dance therapy practitioners of Kolkata Sanved, an organization in India using movement as psychosocial rehabiltiation for survivors of human trafficking and violence. We have had generous support from the Fulbright Foundation and Dance Films Association.

 

About the Fundraiser 

We will be screening this special, participatory piece in the final phase of post-production for the very first time. Stay for a short discussion with FREE BODY PROJECT's Founder and the film's Co-Director, and for networking and celebrating. 

All funds raised will support the creation of 3 scholarship tickets (each is $150) for The Dance + Social Justice Conference, keeping the event accessible for those who can't afford to attend. Donations will also help us fly in 2 dance therapy practitioners from India to speak at the Conference. You will meet these incredible changemakers in the film!  

 

Suggested donation is $30 (which also covers a drink at Covo's fabulous bar). No one will be turned away for lack of funds. If it's too much, just show up! Please come celebrate and make a donation of any amount (if possible) at the door. Every dollar donated goes a long way.
