Joyful Rhythm

View this brief on PDF

Adobe Artist: Max Belchenko

The way we move and the noise we make expresses our dreams and desires, our vulnerabilities and our strengths.

As we relocate from our hometowns to new cities, or immigrate to new countries, we bring music and dance styles to our new homes. Movement and music are vibrant conversations that connect our histories and the values of our cultures to our priorities today.

We want to see imagery that captures dance and gesture, instruments and music-making, and other forms of artistic expression. With this topic, we seek to capture and celebrate the global variations and regional nuances of how we use our bodies and voices to communicate strength and declare resistance, power, and joy.
