The Other Side creates a cross-cultural exchange of dramatic storytelling amongst girls, supporting their common experience, inspiring leadership, and developing community.

In response to closures and distance-learning challenges due to COVID-19, we have pivoted our programming to reflect the needs of our participants. The sisterhood series is split into three focuses: free resources, videos on how to do the activities we teach in our classroom, and a weekly club with girls and femmes from around our globe, ages 11-20

Sisterhood Series: Activities

Look for our fun theatre-centered exercises for girls to do at home to stay activated, engaged, connected, and inspired.

โ€œBeing in The Other Side, I feel like I love myself more. Me being here has taught me that I can love myself just the way I am, I donโ€™t need to change a thing.โ€
