Learn to facilitate conversations on interesting topics and share your opinions in a supportive space.

BAND BOOSTER

Band Booster is a new program where bands can learn how to be bands! Bands get a weekly practice time at our space (gear included!) and learn how to practice effectively, record their music, book shows, and promote themselves with the support of their own experienced band coach, who will help them reach their goals. Only three slots are available, so get them while they’re hot! Program supported by Newport Festivals Foundation.

Cisgender boys may participate in Band Booster, but bands should be at least 50 percent girls, trans, or gender non-conforming youth. Participation is open to youth ages 11-21. Practice times run from 4-5pm Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Registration is REQUIRED in order to attend Band Booster. Band Booster begins September 24th. Register below:

DON’T READ THE COMMENTS: A (TINY) ARTICLE CLUB

Article Club is your chance, as an adult, to talk about all those articles you just read on the internet… IN PERSON! An “article” could mean anything from a piece in a newspaper, magazine, or blog, to a journal article, short story, or a book chapter, or basically any media. Don’t stress if you miss a week– this is really about the conversation! Registration is not required to attend, but it is helpful for us to know who’s attending and what they want to talk about! Learn more about weekly conversations in our Facebook event.
