The Girl Project 2020: Adventuring to
The Girl Project is taking its mission outside of the walls of Woodford Theatre, and bringing programming into the schools to remove barriers to student participation.
For the 2019.2020 year, we will offer a series of after-school residencies to select schools in the Central KY area. These residencies may range from every day after school for one to two weeks, or once a week after school for a select number of weeks.
Contact us if you would like to be part of this pilot programming!
In addition to bringing programming to the schools, The Girl Project continues to expand its vision and impact by offering workshops specifically tailored to marginalized communities. Spring 2020 will feature specialized workshops in collaboration with the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) clubs at Paul Laurence Dunbar, Henry Clay High School, and Woodford County High School. Other participants welcome, dates TBA, but will run January-March 2020.
