The Illinois Arts Alliance is creating a space for learning this Thursday afternoon, June 4, in partnership with Enrich Chicago, at 3:00pm to 4:30pm central time on Arts and Culture as Part of the Solution: Intro to Systemic Racism
Ensemble Español thrives on the shared artistic expressions in collaboration with our dance, art, music and theater partners, in which the performing arts provide our shared love and passion to enriching the lives of our artists, teachers, students and audiences throughout all communities.
We are outraged and saddened when we see continued racism and violence against our Black Communities in our city and beyond. We acknowledge these injustices and must continue to work together as an organization to establish real change for our communities. We extend our heart-felt condolences to the family, friends and community of George Floyd. Sadly other recent victims include Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Laquan McDonald among others.
As a home and refuge for a mosaic of dancers representing several cultures we continue to invite everyone, regardless of background, to join our efforts to express ourselves the best way that we know how, through dance. Change comes in a multitude of ways so please join us as we join in with the world to concentrate on actions for justice and equity for all.
