Arts in Color
Johanna founded Arts in Color (AIC) 2017 at the University of Michigan. AIC is committed to cultivating leadership skills within U of M dance students in hopes that new generations of social-justice advocates may continue to flourish and contribute positively to campus life. Through consistent dialogue and arts-based events geared towards Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, members of Arts in Color are becoming agents of change for issues including, but not limited to, race, sexuality, gender identity, as well as socio-economic and geographical backgrounds. Moreover, the organization strives to honor and encourage the voices and concerns of undergraduate and graduate students in order to promote an inclusive, collaborative, and meaningful learning environment within the Department of Dance. AIC has worked with companies such as Dance Works Chicago and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago.
