Designing for Dancers with Disabilities

Virtual Session Link

NuVu Studio, an innovative high school, reimagines education through experiential-design projects. Their collaborations include Heidi Latsky Dance, an integrated dance company, whose work ON DISPLAY seeks to reset aesthetic values and to erase stigma surrounding disability. Students work with dancers with atypical bodies to create wearable sculptures from the entry points of equity and accessibility. The impactful work rethinks how design shapes minds and informs society.
