Who Runs the World: How Music & Media Affect Girls

Did you know that by age 13 most girls have made their minds up about the kind of music they’ll listen to for the rest of their lives? In this fun workshop we examine what’s happening in music today, how it affects self-esteem and gender identity, and how to choose and advocate for music that has a positive impact. Chock full of interactive activities, music snippets and in depth conversation.

A Group Songwriting Co-Write Experience

Join professional songwriters for a group co-write as we create a unique, interactive musical experience. We’ll brainstorm ideas around an empowering theme, encouraging group conversation. Then our skilled moderators will pull out key phrases and ideas, guiding the songwriting process. In the end we’ll do a performance of our song, recording the experience so that all participants can share. No musical experience is necessary.
Time required: 2 hours
Best for: Groups up to 40
