The Girl Project is an arts-meets-activism initiative designed to empower female-identifying high schoolers to challenge the misrepresentation and underrepresentation of voices and bodies in contemporary American media culture by educating participants in media literacy. Throughout the project participants are introduced to guest artists who create a brave and equitable space for participants as they are led in theatre, dance, spoken word, movement, music, sketch comedy, and visual art workshops. These workshops culminate in the participants' creation of an original, final theatrical performance.


By engaging in the workshops, performances, and related community outreach initiatives, participants in The Girl Project gain creative, cognitive and emotional tools necessary to challenge the negative messages around gender and envision positive possibilities for themselves and their future. The workshops build confidence, nurture positive relationships and social circles, and give the participants a better understanding of advocating for social change.
