Founded in Akron, Ohio in 1995, PWP is a 501c non-profit organization that serves as the backbone for its outreach program, The Infinite Legacy Project and its professional dance company, Pointillism Jazz Consort. Artistic director and founder, Suzanne Winland, started PWP with the ambition to serve the Akron community by providing free dance performances to the public. Today, the organization serves in multiple communities along the east coast, with a strong concentration in Washington DC, and produces performances, humanities-based outreach programs, various artistic events, and scholarship programs.
