Acting UP: Girlfly Visuals

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Join us in the Tenderloin Museum's gallery space for treats and the opening of Acting UP: GIRLFLY Visuals, a new visual art exhibit designed by local youth for the Tenderloin! GIRLFLY is the youth offshoot of Flyaway Productions, the site-specific aerial dance troupe that, back in June, graced the facade of the Tenderloin Museum with Tender (n.): a person who takes charge. Over a 4 week long summer workshop, GIRLFLY introduces 20 teen girls to “outcast activism” in the TL, integrating social justice, female empowerment, oral history writing, visual art and (of course) aerial dance! In collaboration with archivist Dr. Catherine Powell, director of the Labor Archives & Research Center at SF State, and visual artist Lala Openi, the girls translated the stories of Tenderloin activists Pratibha Tekkey, Anakh Sul Rama, and Ilona Master—stories about housing, immigration, and labor activism—into visual art. Come check out this new work and celebrate the youth’s perspective on how and why local activism matters more than ever.
