Presented by the Artist Partner Programs at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, the BlackLight Summit is a year-long dance initiative that investigates how time, people, possibility and hope come together to examine legacy, citizenship and scholarship. The summit asks, through the practice of being socially responsible within the arts: How do we create traditions? How do we transform them into enduring legacies?

The peak of the BlackLight Summit is a three-day convening that features roundtable conversations, artistic presentations and student engagement. This initiative re-envisions dance performance as a conduit to galvanize imagination, resilience and inventiveness.
