Ethiopian Dance Association Project (Ron Aminzade and Hui Wilcox) - Ethiopia

Project Goal: $4,020

Current Progress: $800 (20.00%)

Dance and Dance artists play important roles in preserving and promoting Ethiopia's diverse cultural heritage and in developing the country's cultural and creative sector. The Ethiopian Dance Arts Association (EDAA) is dedicated to strengthening the capacity of the dance field in Ethiopia, raising awareness of the Ethiopian public and government about dance professionals' contributions to Ethiopia's economy and society, empowering Ethiopian dance artists, and working towards gender equality in dance. This project will enable the EDAA to establish a small dance and dance research library.
