Women Rising: Yo’ Girl! Express Yo’ self!
History of San Jose and the artist community has been one that has not always been representative of women and their stories. How do we get our stories told? How do we foster their creativity? Many young women in the Bay Area today don’t have a safe place to grow as woman, let alone as community leaders. Using the arts, we can provide an avenue to develop our narratives, build sisterhood, and grow as woman while making a positive impact in the community. This workshop will explore these issues and the role of art in creating change in our underprivileged communities.
