Girl Be Heard seeks Teaching Artists (TAs) for its after-school, girl empowerment theater programs in New York City’s public middle and high schools. TAs will give participants a foundation in writing and performance-based storytelling, and cultivate an understanding of intersectional feminism and social justice issues affecting women and girls around the world. They will also lead participants through the creative process of writing and performing an original show, which will be performed by the students in a professional theater at the end of the year.
Ideal candidates will have a strong background in planning and leading theatre-based education, and must be passionate about developing girls’ voices. We particularly seek strong writers and editors. An understanding of dismantling racism is key to be successful in this position.
