About January Girls
Begun in 2016 to welcome immigrant girls to our community, January Girls is now expanded to break down walls and generate meaningful shared conversation between generations, cultures and social statuses. Professional artists are hired to lead the group in journaling, conversation and an art project steeped in a theme aimed to bring participants into a deeper dynamic for connection, inspiration and understanding. We are seeing a serious need for girls and women* to strengthen the intergenerational bond in communities.
We believe when young girls see and value the wisdom in elder women and older women draw from the freedom found in the girl child, the hard divisions of age melt away and powerful friendships are born. The same is true for cultural and life resource differences. And we always witness a much-needed release into creative abandon by the mothers bringing their daughters.
January Girls is about active space- making where creativity is the engine for dislodging and disintegrating societal walls.
This is a FREE Workshop
RSVP is required as space is limited.
Email Susan for reservations and the location of each workshop. Sign up for one or all! Please consider bringing a friend- perhaps a shut in or a neighbor, a person new to our community or someone needing a lift of spirit. We welcome all and join together in the spirit of community and friendship.
