Judy Dworin: Hall of Fame Honoree

Congratulations go out to Judy Dworin, Executive/Artistic Director of the Judy Dworin Performance Project (a General Operating Support grant recipient).

The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame has named Judy Dworin as one of ten Honorees named for the 19th Annual Induction Ceremony and Celebration to be held on October, 18th, 2012. This year’s theme is Women’s Perspectives: Celebrating Voice and Vision.

Judy Dworin is a passionate, dedicated and committed arts leader here in Greater Hartford. She founded the Judy Dworin Performance Project  in 1989 to reflect her personal belief that the arts can have a tremendous impact on creating change in our community. For the past 23 years, Judy has made world-class dance a staple of the Hartford arts scene; she is known for creating highly acclaimed, cutting-edge performances that tell little-known stories and speak to our everyday experiences. Judy’s work also tackles social issues, such as homelessness and incarceration, using dance to make them accessible and understandable.  Beyond her work with the Performance Ensemble, the Judy Dworin Performance Project brings movement-based arts instruction into schools and runs outreach programs throughout the state of Connecticut.

Along with Judy, the 2012 Inductees are: Anne Garrels, groundbreaking foreign conflict correspondent; Annie Leibovitz, internationally renowned photographer; and Faith Middleton, thought-provoking radio broadcaster. Click herefor the complete list of this year’s Honorees.
