NHCC COLLABORATION
PEOPLE PLACE DISRUPTION

by Nimbus Dance

A flood of voices: untapped, unheard, enraged. New voices. Young voices. Stifled voices. Voices that stretch the confines of our worldview. Voices that uncover identity. Voices that are exquisite. In People Place Disruption, the artistic voices of a community unite to reflect on the past year. This collective, brought together by Nimbus Dance of Jersey City, includes choreographers, visual artists, video designers, photographers, lighting designers, and filmmakers – a vehicle that summons strength through individual voice and in unified action. People Place Disruption is a multimedia project that illustrates a path forward – unveiled through collective creation.

NHCC IN SOLIDARITY: Our Commitment To Racial Equity:

North Hennepin Community College stands firm against racism and all forms of human oppression. The circumstances surrounding the deaths of Mr. George Floyd and Mr. Daunte Wright, both unarmed African American men, and the Atlanta shootings targeting Asian women, are deplorable. As a college committed to racial equity, we acknowledge the trauma that these incidents cause all of us. As a community, we recognize the fullness of human value and reinforce our commitment to truth, racial healing and transformation.

While higher education alone cannot solve all societal forms of racism, oppression, and trauma, we do serve as an institution of higher learning and civic engagement. As such we will continue to work toward illuminating systems of racial inequity within our own community so that together we can continue dismantling all forms of oppression that adversely affect our community of students. We extend our deepest condolences to the Floyd family.
