Veroneque Ignace

Log-in to Favorite

A public health practitioner, Haitian feminist theorist, and participatory arts researcher, Veroneque Ignace uses dance and writing to merge her passion for public heath and global health. Her launching pad is built upon the notion that health issues and disparities are not simply a result of poor health management, but also a result of the lack of an integrative perspective of what health improvement actually is. With her movement she hopes complicate methods to social change and health equity, connecting spiritual balance and self-understanding to modes of recovery and restoration. She has studied West African and contemporary movement with Sandra L. Burton, in Williams College's Kusika Dance Company, and by extension Nia Love and Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE. In 2016, Ignace founded Kriyol Dance! Collective, a collective of artist-leaders, to incite the unapologetic voices of Black arts, and Haitian culture in particular, through collaborative and unified work and intervention. She is an alum of SUNY Downstate School of Public Health.
