arts-based empowerment curriculum


GLIDE’s Leadership Academy, is one of our inspiring programs for clients and other adults seeking to raise their voices and lead in their community. During the summer, cohorts complete a 16-week arts-based empowerment curriculum focused on the social change. Participants create performances to address the change they want to see in the community.

Graduates have gone on to create powerful art work in the community. Graduates have hosted and participated in community events, such as press conferences on housing/shelter, a domestic violence educational forums, panels on homelessness for local high-school students, film/performances for over 600 guests in the GLIDE Sanctuary, and many community shows in the Tenderloin.
