WomenSing is pleased to be partnering this performance series with the River of Words project. This organization has been conducting training workshops for educators since 1995, helping them to incorporate observation-based nature exploration and the arts into their work with young people. Each year, in affiliation with The Library of Congress Center for the Book, River of Words conducts a free international literary and art contest for youth on the theme of “Watersheds”. Millions of people around the world see the results of this competition. An exhibit of the work will be shown at our performances.
