Lindsey Hanson, Assistant Professor of Dance, recently received a Michigan Arts and Culture Council award for $16,740. The project is titled Untold Stories of Holland: A Cross-Cultural Exchange.
Hope College, Third Rail Projects, project partner Latin Americans United for Progress (LAUP), and local Holland residents will create a community-based dance performance based on the real-life stories of Holland, MI residents. The project will focus on collaborating with musicians from Holland’s Latino/a/x community, as well as other residents whose stories are often overshadowed, particularly members of Holland’s Latino/a/x communities. The project will culminate in a free public showing of an original site-specific performance piece at the Midtown Center in Holland, MI.
Congratulations on your award, Lindsey!
