Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded a grant to the University of Kansas’s Lied Center to support “Utilizing the Performing Arts to Enhance Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Initiatives” project. The project consists of the creation, implementation, and assessment of a new curriculum at KU that explore issues of diversity, equity and inclusion through the performing arts.

This spring we will host the Dancing Wheels Company, considered one of the premier arts and disabilities organizations in the U.S. at the Lied Center on April 14, 2023 @ 7:30 pm.  The company’s program will include a work created in response to the formation of The Americans with Disabilities Act.

Last semester the Mellon Grant Curriculum Team worked alongside members of the dance company to create a DEIB curriculum relating to the work that will be performed at the Lied Center. Any faculty/lecturer who chooses to incorporate this curriculum into their classes will also be able to request free tickets for their class to attend the performance.

For more information regarding the performance and curriculum, please contact Anthea Scouffas at Go to: to read more about the performance and find links to the curriculum at the bottom of the page.
