Power UP .8
January 29 – March 3, 2019
Tuesday & Thursdays
Women make up 50.8% of the population and even though the majority, women face disparity in nearly every professional field…
Rivendell’s new after school program is uniquely aligned with our core mission of advancing the lives of women – in this case, young women ages 8 through 12 – through the power of theater. This program will seek to challenge these girl’s self-perceptions, expose them to new career paths, and offer them the confidence to know their voice and strength in any industry.
Power Up .8 will meet twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays over a period of six weeks and will culminate with a devised short performance open to the community. The program is offered free of charge and will center on the theme of social justice and how young people can become engaged citizens and agents of change.
