Acknowledging the huge need for arts and mentoring for young girls of color, The Gem Project is an interdisciplinary arts and community engagement initiative that fuses dance, art, film & media, theater, and mentoring to cultivate an atmosphere of healing and problem-solving for young girls ages 10-18.
The Gem Project consists of 3, 1-hour workshops in dance and art making. Following the art and movement classes, lunch will be provided to the participants and accompanied by a facilitated group discussion about mental wellness lead by Shalina Ali of Art of Coping. The event will finish with a 20 minute dance showing by contemporary dance performers and a short talkback with the artists will follow.
