GIRLFLY 2023 is taking place in the Mission District of San Francisco. This year we will create both aerial dances and dances in an urban garden. We will also create a cooperative visual arts project, and practice writing as activism. Looking at systems of belonging and identity, students will respond to the question:

“What do you carry to lands you now live, from lands you have come from?”

This question recognizes land stolen from native people; the experience of immigrant and first generation youth; and the hope for safe space now and in the future. We will create amulets from real and imagined objects; we will create collaborative murals, a writing as activism statement, and dances that explore how you carry yourself in your body.

The program is for SF based teen girls and GNC students age 14-19.
