Tolerance in Motion was a workshop lead by Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company & UMFA professionals that asked young dancers from East High School and Salt Lake School for the Performing Arts to join in a creative process that explored the idea of tolerance through the visual and performing arts. These young dancers received a brief lecture and history on the accompanying exhibition, The International Tolerance Project: Promoting Dialogue Through Design, in Utah Museum of Fine Arts’ (UMFA) ACME Lab before collaborating together to make their own large-scale tolerance poster in UMFA’s Great Hall. The dancers then embarked in a workshop of dance, exploring tolerance kinetically in that same space. The visual product created in this workshop will have the opportunity to live-on and promote tolerance at other community locales. The International Tolerance Project: Promoting Dialogue Through Design is on view January 17–June 23, 2019.

Presented in partnership with Utah Museum of Fine Arts. The original concept of the Traveling Tolerance Poster Show by Mirko Ilić.
