About The Event

Voices HEaRd: Kentucky (Feb 23-25) is a community event supporting The Girl Project, based in Lexington, KY. The event is a weekend of performances from artists of all ages, mediums, backgrounds. The pieces in the performances will raise awareness concerning issues of violence against women as well as the many issues and challenges women face in today's society. In addition to the mainstage performance, Voices HEaRd will feature a spoken word night, acoustic music, a community workshop, documentary screening, and a panel brunch discussion on gender equity. Proceeds from this event will benefit The Girl Project as well as Step by Step, an organization committed to helping single mothers in the Lexington, KY area.

About The Organization

The Girl Project

The Girl Project is a unique arts-meets-activism program designed to inspire, educate and empower girls of all ages to challenge the misrepresentation of girls and women in American media culture through performing arts education.

American media culture sends girls the wrong message about who they are and who they can become. Now in its fifth year, The Girl Project provides girls with the creative, cognitive and emotional tools necessary to challenge this negative message and envision positive possibilities for themselves and their futures.

The Girl Project is part of Woodford Theatre's Education Program. Currently, our work focuses on three major areas: The Girl Project (High School), The Girl Project: Next Generation (Middle School), and Voices Heard: Kentucky (Community).
