Join community members and friends of The Other Side Intercultural Theatre on December 3rd, to support and exalt the courage of young girls from all over New York City’s five boroughs, as they tell their stories and advocate for themselves and their communities. The Other Side’s 3rd annual Winterfest brings together unique performers who endorse their mission to create a community of girls through global drama exchange. In order to raise money to fund their 2017 initiatives, the Festival will include a silent auction and other opportunities to donate. Free food and beverages will be provided. According to Melanie Closs, Program Director and Founder of The Other Side, “It’s important to have events like this so our participants can feel the support of their neighbors, and also witness inspiring performances by other female activists. It is our hope that by creating improved global citizens, encouraging advocacy and artistry, and promoting a more supportive female environment, we will see our participants lead all of our communities to a better future. Join us on Saturday to celebrate these girls!”
