Lemonade Crunchy Ice! Finding Power through Rituals, Art, and Meals

GIRL Project's Lemonade Crunchy Ice was a success! The workshops ran from February to May with 12 total sessions. Through a safe intergenerational space, the youth explored finding our power through Ritual, Art, and the sharing of meals and culture. The group participated in theatre games and spent lots of time laughing. In between the levity was an opportunity to share experiences as BIPOC women including topics like police brutality, asian hate, closed schools, and standing up as women. The video linked here shows some highlights from this program. 

A big thank you to all of our teachers–Ellen Sebastian Chang, Tarika Lewis, Indigo Mateo, and Hamida Yusufzai. Thanks to all our GIRL Project staff–Director Claudine Naganuma, Project Coordinator Simone Nalls, and Program Coordinator Shaunnah Ray. A special thanks to the EastSide Cultural Center. 

 

Lemonade Crunchy Ice is supported in part by the California Arts Council and Oakland Cultural Funding Program. dNaga is fiscally sponsored by Dancer's Group. We also thank our individual donors and our fairy godmother.
