Visiting Artists

Being true to its mission: to explore and discover the intersection between cultures and communities, ACDT has been performing, teaching, studying, and collaborating with artists from around the globe. The most recent collaborations have matured into strong relationships with artists from Latin America and Mexico.

Over the years ACDT has hosted and worked in collaborations with artists for over 35 countries.
