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. Now in its sixth year, the Women’s History Artist Month festival — WHAM — showcases a wide range of local independent artists and helps raise vital funding for the Performing Arts Conservatory.
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 WHAM 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.
There is a suggested $10 donation for all WHAM events; you are welcome to contribute whatever amount is feasible for you. All proceeds from the WHAM festival go toward supporting the artists and the Performing Arts Conservatory.
