DNAWORKS offers workshops to arts institutions, community and not-for-profit organizations, and in corporate environments. Our workshops are designed specifically for the host’s needs in the realms of creating greater connectedness through community-based creative practice and/or promoting sustainable institutional or community-wide change in equity, access, and opportunity for all.
Some examples of workshops that we have offered in the past include:
