Project Description

To support the healing and empowerment of under-served cis/trans girls, women, and nonbinary individuals in Los Angeles through heart-centered movement. We work predominantly with girls and women of color residing in L.A.’s lowest-income areas. 75% of our participants identify as Latinx and immigrants or children of immigrants. Our vision is a world where all cis & trans girls, women and non-binary individuals can cultivate confidence, resilience and community to achieve their goals and dreams, for the betterment of their lives and that of the planet

CMDC’s approach to arts instruction is healing-centered and trauma-informed. We provide an approach to arts education that is strengths-based, focuses on empowerment, and supports individuals’ holistic well-being, while also recognizing the impact of trauma. Our programs exemplify the tenets of “healing-centered” arts education, which promotes resilience, cultural relevance, community and a sense of belonging.
