As you know, thanks in great part to Impact Austin, Grrl Action is now a year-round program that kicks off every year with the Summer Workshop. Girls can choose to participate only in the Summer Workshop or to continue on through the year. Click here to learn more about the program and download the Summer 2008 application.
THE SUMMER WORKSHOP
The Summer Workshop is a three-week intensive workshop run by Rude Mechanicals, Austin’s award winning theatre collective, in which girls envision, create, publish, and perform original works for the stage based on their own life experiences. Girls work with professional writers, performers, and designers to put their stories on stage for two free public performances. The summer workshop kicks off the Grrl Action program-year, and graduates of the summer program are invited to participate in the year-round artistic mentorship program. No former experience with creative writing or performance is required.
THE YEAR-ROUND PROGRAM
* This year-round program invites girls who participate in the summer workshop to develop long-term projects inspired by their individual interests and passions.
* Each girl is carefully paired with a professional woman mentor who provides one-on-one guidance for her project and gives her an entry into a possible future career.
* With help from their mentors, peers, and teachers, girls plan and execute long-term artistic projects, from art installations and books of poetry to solo performance and dance pieces to documentary and narrative films.
* Through ongoing field trips to performances, art exhibits, lectures, readings and concerts, girls are encouraged to become active participants in the local arts and activist communities.
