January Girls is a series of four workshops each January in partnership with Guild Hall of East Hampton where girls and women ages 6-106 come together to journal, converse, and make art around topics of friendship, self-image, and community issues. January Girls is an experience for intergenerational conversation. We highly encourage mothers, grandmothers, aunts and women friends (particularly those you see- immigrants, the elderly, those new to our community, etc) to come. This is not a children's activity. This is a COMMUNITY of females activity aiming at conversation and friendship.
Our 2018 program offered two workshops in film making (The Presentation of Self) with film maker Kate Gilroy, "Memory Mapping" creations with artist Darlene Charneco, and bottle art painting (My Body Is Art) with reverse-glass painter Gabriele Raacke.
Begun as a program to welcome immigrant girls into a community circle of friendship, January Girls, a FREE program to participants, has expanded that mission not only to include those new to our East End community, but also to embrace females across the perceived age barrier. Engaging in conversation and idea and experience sharing, in our opinion, knocks down those invisible yet harsh walls of ageism and sets us leagues ahead in realizing our allies, friends, and supporters.
To become a sponsor of this program and help us keep these workshops reaching out to bring our girls and women together in empowerment, please contact Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org.
