Day of the Girl is a recurring program dedicated to
empowering young women. The theme of this fall’s event is
Exploring Creativity Through Collaboration.
Participants will work alongside Longue Vue’s
2018 Artist-in-Residence, Jamar Pierre and celebrated
mural artist Monica Kelly sharing ideas about beauty, art and
social justice to create a collaborative large-scale painting
honoring the experiences of young women.
Registration is now open!
We ask that you please register and RSVP.
Are adults welcome at Day of the Girl?
In past programs we have included additional activities for adults. For this Day of the Girl, adults are welcome but there is no adult component of this event.
Who are the speakers?
This Day of the Girl is a little different than past programs. Longue Vue’s 2018 Artist in Residence, Jamar Pierre and celebrated mural artist Monica Kelly will spend a short time speaking but the bulk of the day will consist of conversation and activity around sharing ideas about beauty, art and social justice. Girls will work with the artists to create a collaborative large-scale painting honoring the experiences of young women.
