Moving Minds Museum

The Moving Minds Museum™ is a multi-art, multimedia, performance-based journey into the personal dance histories and legacies of dance artists who have impacted the dance community.

 

It was launched in 2016 in collaboration with the Jamaica Dance Umbrella. The museum focused its exhibition on the 2016  JDU honourees Sheila Barnett, Alma Mock Yen and Tony Wilson. The space was enlivened with archival artifacts, site specific movers, as well as with specially chosen visual arts work  - featuring ground-breaking sculptor Traci Wong - which have been melded with seminal aspects of the awardees' contribution to Dance in Jamaica
