Work with our Griot Girls Afterschool...
About the Griot Girls Workshop:This two hour creative workshop is an exploration of performing and literary arts in various African traditions from storytelling to rapping; there are lots of creative ways we tell our stories and the stories of our communities. Using creative writing as the foundation, middle school girls will learn various forms of writing techniques, oral traditions, and explore their own creativity by creating a poetry book and hosting their own open mic at the end of the semester.
We are seeking candidates that have a passion and interest in Hip-Hop Theatre, youth development, and who are able to work in the arts as well as in a classroom. Candidates must have a passion for the subject and be able to share and encourage that passion in youth. Candidates should have experience and may assist in building partnerships with local artists and local organizations to recruit new resources for the program.
