WHY MOONDANCE HAS MOVED TO MYSTIC:
Mystic, Connecticut, located mid-way between New York City and Boston, has the unique distinction of being one of the most popular tourist and vacation areas in New England, and is the most-popular visitor destination in the state of Connecticut. Mystic is a lovely small seaside town with big-city amenities – great seafood restaurants, a lively arts and music scene, the popular Old Mystic Village, and, for film-goers, the original Mystic Pizza! Mystic is known for its historic, quintessential New England charm, welcoming ambience, generous financial support for the arts, as well as for its world-class attractions: Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium and the Olde Mystic Village. Mystic is the perfect destination location for this internationally recognized event!
Come join us!
Founded by Oscar®-winning actor, Louis Gossett Jr., who, upon envisioning this organization, committed his life to an all-out conscious offensive against racism, violence, and ignorance. The foundation’s mission is to eradicate the systematic impacts of all forms of racism by providing programs that foster cultural diversity, historical enrichment, education, and anti-violence initiatives, and by addressing these issues, connecting individuals to their history/culture, and empowering them with the appropriate educational and training resources.
SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT
“If you believe in something, it’s worth fighting for. There will be tests along the way. There may even be times it seems all hope is lost. Just remember that every “no” brings you closer to a “yes,” and every seeming failure brings you closer to success. No matter what, you’re always closer now than you were before.” ~ YEHUDA BERG
“Experience is what you have left over, after you’ve made a mistake.” ~ M. F. POWERS

“The universe is like a mirror. Say a kind word into a mirror, and it will say the same back to you. Curse into the mirror, and the image curses back. It is our own actions that rebound into our lives, like reflections bouncing back from a cosmic mirror. Smile at the world today, and the world will smile back at you.” ~ YEHUDA BERG
“I look out the window and hope I’ll see a swan. I hear they’re bad-tempered, but I love their elegant necks, and how they glide along with such sovereignty. Take the time to go to a pond, and spend an hour watching swans. What would happen if we heeded the admonitions of beauty?” ~ BARON WORMSER (quote excerpted & edited)

“Money, itself, has no intrinsic value. Only those great purposes for which it is used can be considered worthy, noble, or of value.” ~ ENID ABLOWITZ
