EXPLORE YOUR IDENTITY AND CELEBRATE DIVERSITY THROUGH A SHORT DANCE FILM

Our Safe to Be Me™ project supports young people to feel safe and confident in who they are. This exciting project uses dance to discuss topics such as racism, homophobia, bigotry, ableism, and transphobia.

We are challenging young people between the ages of 12 – 23 to create 1-minute dance films on their phones, to specially scored music tracks. The films should explore the core themes of Safe to Be Me™ and be a creative expression of identity, acceptance, and respect through the voices of young people.

Five exceptional films will be chosen at the end of the challenge for a special showcasing opportunity during our digital Safe to Be Me™ festival in May 2021.
