Culture Flow Projects is a Fiscally Sponsored Project of Fractured Atlas, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your contributions are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. Learn more below.
Culture Flow Projects, housed at PiYoDa Flow in West Adams, aims to provide affordable and sustainable dance training for youth K-12 and access to studio space for emerging artists in the greater Los Angeles area. We are a community of movement-based artists and cultural educators devoted to creating space for global dance engagement and exploration.
L.A. is a vibrant multicultural landscape whose global presence seeps into the everyday lives of Los Angelinos. In this way, we believe that global and diasporic communities and cultures are significant contributors to L.A.’s vibrant arts and dance scene. Our work is centered around keeping these varied cultures and dance practices alive and thriving.
Culture Flow Projects is two parts:
(1) a K-12 outreach arts/dance program at PiYoDa Flow and partnering schools in South L.A. and surrounding areas. We make dance training from around the world available to children and teenagers. We offer Afro-diasporic, LatinX, Yoga, Contemporary and Street dance training, performance opportunities, dance workshops and intensives/camps, and arts-based pre-college mentorship. At the same time, we advocate for and teach Culture Flow values of positive body image, wellness, creativity, culture significance and continuity, and community-building to our students.
(2) a residency program for emerging artists, ages 18 and up, interested in working at the intersection of street/social dance and experimental choreography. We encourage engagement in storytelling, social justice and wellness, and applicants from global and diasporic perspectives to apply.
Culture Flow Projects is an ongoing project that requires constant support to pay for teaching artists, space, and administrative labor. Please make a contribution today and support us in nurturing Los Angeles’s rich and diverse dance scene!
