The Dance Exchange is hosting INSPIRE, a Youth Internship Program supported by Maryland Multi-cultural Youth Centers.  In this six-week summer intensive, participants will gain leadership skills, engage in the community and make art in the local environment.  This project is led by Wayles Haynes, the Youth Programs Coordinator and Lead Artist of the Teen Exchange at the Dance Exchange. I am a supporting artist offering workshops in art making, community engagement, video and photography

Inspire is a young adult internship program involving individual mentoring of participants as they develop skills in community engagement, project management, communications and movement based art-making.  This multi-layered project results in various outcomes from personal achievement to facilitating public discourse and art-making around shared spaces and ideas.  Participants will learn about the many facets of the Dance Exchange from artistry to administration and develop their own practice in how to engage a community around concept-based making. This will come in three main conduits; personal art-making, mentor observed group work and community engagement. ~
