POAD at the Second World Conference of Women's Shelters
(presented by the U.S. National Network to End Domestic Violence
and the Global Network of Women's Shelter)
Pieces of a Dream, Inc. was honored to participate in the 2nd World Conference of Women's Shelters, presented by the U.S. National Network to End Domestic Violence and the Global Network of Women's Shelters. The conference was held February 27-March 1, 2012 in Washington, D.C. and was host to 1300 delegates representing 97 countries. POAD was selected from a field of thousands of international applicants to perform their orginal choreographic work "ToGetHer" for the entire body of attendees, honored guests, and press. We were one of a handful of arts organizations present at the event, and we had the distinct honor of performing immediately before United States President Bill Clinton took the stage. Below you will see excerpts of the Conference Program, a presentation highlighting POAD's performance of "ToGetHer", and several photos of the dancers and POAD's Executive & Artistic Director Ashley SK Davis at the Conference.
