ongoing creative expression
Anuradha hopes to provide a platform where displaced and marginalized community members may find a place where their voices can be heard and shared through creative expression and also bring awareness to larger global issues. Anuradha is a recipient of the Artistic Innovations Grant 2018 from the Mid-America Arts Alliance for a new pilot project called Dance for Global Goals. She is also the first Artist in Residence at the Asian American Resource Center, a facility of the City of Austin. During this project she will be conducting workshops with multi-generational members of the South Asian community who experience marginalization. The project will empower seniors from India as well as teens from refugee camps, and culminate with a performance piece with Anuradha and musical accompanists in April of 2018. Projects like these are in line with Anuradha’s dedication to fully utilize dance as a tool of empowerment while preserving and promoting South Asian culture and heritage.
