“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.
