HOLA! On Feb 27th, 2018 we were fortunate to visit with 600 amazing students at the U of Guadalajra, Mexico! It was exciting to spend time in such a beautiful place and to be welcomed with open arms. We were impressed with their questions and encouraged by such a rich and diverse cultural exchange. Special guest musician Natalia Zukerman and IT maven Christy Ganc (ESPN) helped round out our program.
We had the best day with the kids of Sea Cliff Elementary this past Friday, February 9, 2018. And it was made even more amazing with our special guest moderator, WNBA All-Star Sue Wicks! Check out more photos from the outreach on our photos page!
We are thrilled to be guests at this year's Out & Equal Summit at the Philadelphia Convention Center from Oct 9-Oct 12. Not only will we be performing at the Opening Brunch on Tuesday morning at 11am, we will also present our very own Girls Rising Breakout Panel Discussion with panel moderator and Out&Equal Board member, Amy Hanneman. After that, Kristen will speak on a featured panel discussion about Intersectionality, where she will bring her unique perspective on ways in which sexuality, gender, race, and other identity categories shaped Antigone Rising's experiences as well as how AR has shared those experiences with people around the world through Girls Rising Outreach programs. And finally, Kristen, Cathy and Nini will spend a few days on the convention exhibit floor talking to corporations about how Girls Rising can align with them to bring about change in the coming year!
It will be a busy week. We suggest you follow along on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook so you don't miss a thing!
Girls Rising teamed up with Sea Cliff SummerStrings!
SummerStrings gives elementary, middle and high school students who study orchestral string instruments the opportunity to play rock, blues, fiddling and improvisational styles of music in a fun, social setting. ROCKESTRA (the most advanced string orchestra) collaborated with Nini Camps and Cathy Henderson to perform MY TOWN and GAME CHANGER for their summer music festival held at Tilles Center's Hillwood Recital Hall, Long Island University. In addition to this unique performance, Rockestra will also perform live at Sea Cliff Beach with Antigone Rising at BeachFest3, September 17th 2016 (rain date is September 18th) .
'Tis the season to empower young girls and remind them that they can be anything they want to be! Finally, something we ALL can agree on!
