We are honored and privileged to be able to do this work on lands that have been cared for by many indigenous communities of the past, present, and future—including our friends the Council of the Original Miccosukee Simanolee Nation Aboriginal Peoples, the Seminole Tribe of Florida, and the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida. We encourage you to learn more about their environmental priorities and to do your best to support policies that integrate those conservation principles.

Join us on April 23 for National Water Dance 2022

NWD Projects is proud to be the organizing institution for National Water Dance nationwide. National Water Dance is a biennial event comprised of an artist-driven collective of dancers, students, educators, and community members who create simultaneous performances across the United States. The 5th National Water Dance will take place on April 23, 2022.


NWD Projects, “National Water Dance 2020” is supported in part by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners, and Live Arts Miami.

NWD Projects is committed to providing disability accommodations for all of our events and performances. We believe that the arts are enhanced and enriched when all community members have the ability to participate. Please contact us for more information or to request specific accommodations.
