DNAWORKS: Dialogue + Healing through the Arts. Founded in 2006 by Adam McKinney, M.A. and Daniel Banks, Ph.D., DNAWORKS is an arts and service organization dedicated to furthering artistic expression and dialogue, focusing on issues of identity, culture, class and heritage. We catalyze performance and action through the arts in the intersecting communities in which we live. In our work, art = ritual = healing = community. We believe that this philosophy and practice lead to a more peaceful world.

DNAWORKS has led programming and workshops at such notable institutions as Wellesley College, California Institute of the Arts, Babson College, Bryn Mawr College, New York University, Skidmore College, University of California Berkeley, DePaul University, University of Ghana Legon, and the Black Theatre Network, among others, and has worked with community organizations and congregations in Salt Lake City, Atlanta, Toronto, Tacoma, Los Angeles, New York City, Budapest, Szarvas and Balatonlelle, Hungary, and Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa. Now in our 15th year, we have toured productions and/or led programming in 37 states and 17 countries. Current projects include THE SECRET SHARER (recipient of 2019 MAP Fund Award), FORT WORTH LYNCHING TOUR: HONORING THE MEMORY OF MR. FRED ROUSE, HAMAPAH/THE MAP DANCE-ON-FILM, and THE REAL JAMES BOND...WAS DOMINICAN (touring).
