Every March, during Women’s History Month, Goddard Riverside’s Community Arts program hosts an exciting month-long arts festival celebrating female artists and perspectives. The Women’s History Artist Month festival — W.H.A.M. — showcases a wide range of local independent artists.

W.H.A.M. serves as the Community Arts Program’s annual charitable fundraising drive that jointly supports our presented artists and the future of our programs, including PAC, the Performing Arts Conservatory summer program offering 100% tuition-free professional training.

The Conservatory is an intensive summer arts education program for children ages 8 to 14. Our staff of experienced educators and professional artists teach discipline, confidence, and creative thinking to the approximately 75 young people who participate each year.

The funds raised during the W.H.A.M. festival provide essential support for the Conservatory and help make it truly inclusive by allowing us to serve all young people regardless of their experience or economic circumstance.
