A LOOK AT NCCAKRON'S FIRST BOOK, FORTHCOMING, SUMMER 2021
Shifting Cultural Power: Case Studies & Questions in Performance by choreographer Hope Mohr (San Francisco, CA).
Part documentation, part workbook, "Shifting Cultural Power" offers compelling insight for artist-activist leaders. This book, Mohr's first, reflects on her ten years at the helm of the Bridge Project and the organization's shift into distributed leadership. Originally focused on creating critical exchange within the Bay Area dance community, the Bridge Project evolved to become a home for national discourse around the performing arts and activism. Mohr describes a decade of artist-centered curation, the evolution of the operating context, and her decision to move control of the organization to distributed leadership.
