We’d love to hear from you!
Founded in 2006 by Daniel Banks, Ph.D. and Adam McKinney, M.A., DNAWORKS is an arts and service organization dedicated to furthering artistic expression and dialogue, focusing on issues of identity, culture, class, and heritage. DNAWORKS applies its award-winning arts process to develop and create dance, theater, and film to promote dialogue-based social justice action and community building with academic institutions and community organizations across the U.S. and in fifteen countries. DNAWORKS believes art = ritual = healing = community and that this philosophy and practice lead to a more peaceful and understanding world.
