On December 3rd, we will again join the worldwide initiative that honors the United Nations’ International Day of Person with Disabilities, which is a human sculpture court, originated by Heidi Latsky Dance, that challenges the collective understanding of seeing and being seen. This year we are partnering with San Antonio based dance collective, SA Dance Fringe.
We will host two different hours on the 3rd of December for you to join ON DISPLAY GLOBAL 2021. One where you can join us from your home at 11-12pm CT. And other one virtual as well from 7-8pm CT.

If you do not have a zoom account, you will have the opportunity to rename as you enter the waiting room, but you will need to do this extremely quickly therefore we recommend creating a free zoom account beforehand.

- As you enter the meeting, your microphone will be muted and your video will be on automatically.
- An HLD representative will give you a few seconds (approx 20) before letting you in from the waiting room. Please use that time to get into your first pose, and make sure you are ready to go.
** As soon as you are let in, the sculpture court begins.
- Keep track of the time you committed to. You might want to set a timer or have someone else keep track. You are encouraged to continue after the time is up, or re-enter at another time, but must stay for at least your allotted time. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE before the time you’ve registered for, We are counting on your commitment to that time slot.
- When you are ready to end the sculpture court, please find an inconspicuous way to turn off your camera or leave the meeting. (On the bottom left corner of the zoom screen click “Stop Video”, or on the bottom right click “leave”) You may want to put your cursor on either button before you begin, so all you have to do is click.
- If you would like to continue watching as an audience member, you must turn off your camera and change out of / cover up your white clothing before you turn your camera back on. . You may also leave the meeting and re-enter after you have changed.
