Join us as we honor individuals and organizations empowering women and girls locally and globally! Highlights include a variety of performances including capoeira, ballet, and the Global Girls Everyday People Theatre Company. Awards will be presented throughout the event.
Globally, all girls have the ability to voice their stories, create opportunities, and actualize their dreams. Global Girls Inc. is an engaging and often cutting-edge youth performing arts organization on the south side of Chicago. They provide a safe space where girls ages 8-18 learn communication, presentation and performance skills. Over 500 hundred girls participate annually in community and school based arts education initiatives, workshops and conferences. During the weekly sessions, participants learn skills to investigate their world and then turn their findings into performance pieces. The result is socially conscious, youth driven theatre that gives voice to girls’ issues and concerns.
Open to the public. Tickets are $20, and will be available at the door.
Sponsored by the International House Global Voices Performing Arts Series and Global Girls.
