What is Girl Be Heard?
We are a feminist theater organization that provides free year-long girl empowerment workshops meeting weekly on Sunday afternoons in Manhattan. Graduates become eligible for paid performance opportunities, shows and advocacy events.
Build your self-esteem and grow your individual talents!
Who is it for?
Young women, girls and gender trans/gender nonconforming youth (ages 12 to 21). Those interested in strengthening their skills as artist/activists through performance, writing, and self-expression. Folks who want to work together to speak out about social justice issues. (No prior experience needed!)
Empower yourselves to become leaders and activists in your own communities.
How do I audition?
Bring one original piece—memorized and written by you. It should be in your own voice and about a social justice issue important to you.
Auditions are currently closed and will begin again in fall of 2019.
