Summer Camp Showcase
During our week-long summer program, campers receive instrument instruction, form bands, and write original songs to be performed at the end-of-camp Girls Rock! RVA Showcase. Campers get to see daily live performances by local musical artists, and participate in a wide range of non-musical workshops that aim to build self-confidence and encourage personal exploration and growth.Later in the week, when bands have had time to write and practice their original songs, we hold a dress rehearsal before the Saturday Showcase. At the showcase, bands get to perform for a large audience, with a sound engineer, through a professional PA!

Gary Chapman and The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace @ The Byrd Theatre | Richmond | Virginia | United States
Do you feel appreciated by the people you work with? According to research, 70% of employees say that they receive no praise or recognition at work.  While we would all like to make more money, the number one factor in job satisfaction is not the amount of pay, but whether or not the individual feels appreciated and valued for the work they do. If you’re an employer interested in increasing employee satisfaction and performance, decreasing turnover, and improving your bottom line, you won’t want to miss Gary Chapman, the New York Times Best Selling Author of The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace.

Aug 21 @ 7:15 pm – 10:15 pm
Fattitude Screening Sponsored by Caroline Pascual @ The Byrd Theatre
MEET THE DIRECTORS OF FATTITUDE AND BE ONE OF THE FIRST TO SEE THE FILM. Fattitude examines how popular culture perpetuates the fat hatred and fat-shaming that results in a very real cultural bias and a civil rights issue for people who are living in fat bodies. Fattitude is the brain-child of filmmakers Lindsey Averill and Viridiana Lieberman. Informed by a social justice background, Fattitude is very conscious and attentive to the idea that fat hatred crosses the lines of race, class, sexuality and gender. The film features a diverse variety of voices such as academic scholars, activists, Hollywood types (directors, writers and actors) and psychologists – including the likes of Ricki Lake, Rebecca Phul, Jackson Katz, Marilyn Wann, Sonya Renee Taylor, Virgie Tovar, Jen Posner, Lindy West, Winne Holzman, Guy Branum, Tess Holliday, Andrew Walen and others. Ultimately, Fattitude’s goal is to change the national conversation about body image so that it focuses not only on issues of self-acceptance, but also on legitimate questions of systemic cultural prejudice. Check out the trailer at Fattitudethemovie.com This event is sponsored by Caroline Pascual, RN Certified Mind Body Eating Coach
