“Upstate Girls,” A Conversation
April 2, 2009 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm EDT
Teenage girls from throughout the Capital Region share stories about the challenges in their lives, gathering with representatives of the institutions with which they are entwined – including the legal, educational, healthcare, and penal systems- in response to award winning photojournalist Brenda Ann Kenneally’s compelling work.
The Sanctuary will host a one day workshop to facilitate a dialogue between girls from the Upstate Girls exhibition, other young women growing up in the Capital Region, and the many agencies that can influence their efforts to break the cycle of post-industrial marginalization.
This free workshop has been partially funded, in part, by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Media Justice Fund of the Funding Exchange.
We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
