We're working with Asian Girls Ignite and Slant'd on an new workshop called Representation Matters. This FREE 4-day summer pilot program is taking place July 12th-15th.
This is co-designed with AAPI middle school girls for AAPI middle school girls. Why? Because their voice, thoughts, and creativity matter. Representation shapes how people are viewed by society and how they view themselves. Early experiences and exposure shape what people imagine to be possible. To see ourselves represented in different spaces and stories can inspire us to open doors for ourselves and others.
This program will feature both in-person AND virtual events. It's open to all Colorado AAPI rising 7th-9th grade girls — anyone who identifies as a girl, gender nonconforming, queer, or transgender is welcome.
Workshop participants will:
- Explore the importance of representation
- Unleash their creativity through story writing and improv
- Do fun, hands-on activities for community building
- Connect with AAPI women from various industries
Spots are limited to only 16 girls. Register now!
