Mid-Winter Recess Arts Workshop

February 18 @ 10:00 am - February 21 @ 5:00 pm

The Program for Girls & Young Women offers a free Mid-Winter Recess Arts Workshop Tuesday, February 18-Friday, February 21, from 10am-5pm. In keeping with February’s focus on love and also Black History Month, our workshop theme is “Love Thyself!” and will explore self-love, community love, and love that grows our power. The workshop will include poetry, spoken word, collaborative film-making, a Calligraphy and Sumi-E workshop at the Japan Society, and hands-on STE(A)M projects*. Participants are encouraged to enroll all four days as the poetry and film development process will be cumulative – but some exceptions may be made. The workshop will culminate with an intimate performance of poetry and screening of short films from 4-5pm on Friday, February 21st in our program space, located at 1525 Townsend Avenue between 172nd Street and Mt. Eden Avenue, near the 4 and D trains and the Bx 1, 2 and 11 buses.  Lunch will be provided daily. Open to female identified or gender non-conforming youth, aged 12-18.
