Gathering relations among beautiful strangers to elevate new communities
Our Civic Actions emerge out of seven years of community relationship building that endeavors to incite movements of compassion in direct sensuous reality for the revitalization of a new South. Civic Actions were localized in Georgia the first couple of years and then glo opened up our ideas of what community is. The shift attracted all kinds of neighborhoods in the U.S., and abroad, invested in choreography as a toolbox addressing the conviction that bodies of information stored in the daily lives of people are art.
Participation in the Civic Actions has grown from 4,500 in 2013 to over 64,000 in 2019. According to past surveys, more than 64% of participants earn less than the median household income, and is comprised of people of all ages, backgrounds, and ability.
Year-round, communities of advocates, educators, artists, activists, and preservationists come together to construct working residencies with glo. Residencies have grown from 4–6 days, to 3–8 months, to long-term projects. This fall we awaken to the imminent possibility of a world full of radical sharing, listening, and freedom.
