CDC Voices

What participants liked most and say about CDC Festival 2023

“The positive vibes and feeling of inclusion”

“The Workshops and the thought-out concept”

“The celebration of black culture. The effort to try to create a safer space – the great lineup”

The approach of the whole festival: I really felt that it was all about consciousness and not only consumption of the dance. And the way everything felt respectful and even people’s behaviour was love and consciousness and trying to be better humans. There is a before and after CDC for me!!!

“I really like the words celebration and joy. I liked the conference very much, of course all the dance, but I like the instances of reflection to go deep also to spirit and to see there our relation with dance”

About the Reflection and Empowerment Session at CDC 2023

“thank you for offering these, so important and mostly lacking in our community”

“I went to both reflection sessions. I really loved that it was not passive but active involvement with activities and exercises and not only presentations. It was uncomfortable because it was a mirror and that made it very constructive.”
