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.
