COMING UP

Creating Connections

What can our community look like if we imagine it together?

Building on a series of dynamic summer panels, Destiny will continue to hold space monthly for open conversation with our community. Our summer series began powerful discussions on dance as protest, the movement for Black lives, consent in the time of COVID, systemic racism, arts in advocacy and youth-led organizing. We hope join the conversation by tuning-in to upcoming panels this fall!
