glo is a southern women-led social movement platform organized through the analogy of a living organism, to better understand the world. Through movement, inter-disciplinary research, free live art programming, and making space, our mission is to galvanize artists, activists, and local communities and affect the overall ecology of arts and culture in the American South. Framed by three core values–people matter, histories survive, our bodies unite–our hybrid work serves as a catalyst for discussions on equity, race, history, and who gets to dance.

glo’s most valuable asset is working across disciplines. The platforms’ willingness to take risks, respond to other art practices, and support fellow artists has created an ever-widening alliance while creating glo’s unique trajectory.
