2013 girls IdeaFestival®
Inspired by the annual multi-disciplinary IdeaFestival® held each Fall in Louisville to foster creativity, innovation and transformative learning, Louisville Girls Leadership will present the inaugural Girls IdeaFestival® targeting specifically high school girls, the adults in their lives and male allies.
The goal of the Girls IdeaFestival® is to develop creative and innovative solutions to challenges girls face today. The event will focus particularly on creating ideas to counter longstanding issues; for changing the way girls are portrayed by the media, developing healthy relationships, encouraging girls to become more civically engaged, expanding girls’ economic opportunities, and eliminating human trafficking. This one-day event will further support LGL’s mission of empowering girls community-wide.
Registration is free in advance, $5 at the door.
