The Choreography of Care

June 21, 2022


What is the shape of care? What are the movements of caregiving? How do we find—and when and where do we lose—meaning in the rhythms of our lives? In our June Community of Practice workshop, we will watch a brief excerpt of a dance piece created by Dr. Sarah Kim and explore these questions together. We will discuss, write reflectively, and be given the chance to share that writing if we choose. Together, we will practice our own choreography across our shared Zoom screens.
