artists with purpose

Professional performing arts training for high school and middle school aged students. Activate takes a holistic approach to training by focusing on increasing artistic skills, navigating the logistics of becoming a working artist, and cultivating artists who strive to make an impact in their community with their art. 


Cranking up the volume on voices, stories and action, Voices Amplified is stoked to bring you an interview podcast featuring the artists, activists, volunteers, community leaders and organizers that have been inspirational to our work for the past eight years.

An intergenerational response to the media’s representation of the feminine body. Weekly hybrid workshops involve exploring commercial and psychological forces influencing body image through writing, movement, and holding space for participant's stories. Movement exploration is crafted using Laban, Viewpoints, Suzuki, and traditional dance styles and will be accessible to participants of all ages, shapes, and abilities.

Bodies Amp’d is designed to empower and unite female-identifying participants of ALL ages, abilities, ethnicities, shapes, and sizes. We offer full and partial scholarships through our generous donors and grant funding from the Kentucky Fund for the Arts and the Kentucky Foundation for Women.


A community for female-identifying high school-aged students designed to build confidence and nurture positive relationships and social circles. The Girl Project deepens participants' understanding of media literacy, advocacy, and social change through performing arts education.
