Voices HEard 2020:
The Girl Project
This year we are celebrating the Centennial Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage. In 1920, women gained the right to vote and the ability to share their voice in the electoral process. Although the time was a monumental period for many women, others still found themselves unrepresented and oppressed by the social structures and of the 1900s that even access to the ballot box did not dismantle.
The Girl Project is calling for play submissions for our PlayFest portion of the fourth annual Voices HEaRd! Plays should be no longer than 8 minutes in length and will premiere at Voices HEaRd September 11-13, 2020! This year we are commissioning plays centered around the Centennial Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage. 100 years later, how have we progressed? Where have we gained ground and who in our communities is still not being heard? How do we come alongside and use privilege for helping the underrepresented, or how do we share what can go unnoticed in times of major cultural movements?
Not a playwright but still want to submit a piece? Email us to inquire about available opportunities at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Like many organizations, COVID-19 has turned our world upside down. In light of current public health recommendations, we are providing two virtual opportunities for students interested in The Girl Project in summer 2020. The first will be the GenZ Project, a two week virtual intensive offered to students of all gender identities, and The Girl Project virtual, a one week intensive for female identifying students.
