A weekly space by and for Hudson teens. Run in partnership with the Staley B. Keith Social Justice Center.
Thursdays 4pm - 7pm
January 18 - June 9 2017
Free for Hudson teenagers. Donations welcome.
Space 101 is a space for teenagers in Hudson to have as their own. A core group of teenagers come together every week to produce media and music, cook food, go on fun trips, and meet other youth organizers and leaders in the area.
Space 101 is coordinated Claire Cousin, with TeeQuan Davis, and a leadership team of teenagers who help with program planning and recruitment.
In 2016-2017, Space 101 is joined every other week by WISEBODIES for a series of workshops and discussions exploring topics of gender, sexuality, identity, anatomy, body image and society. These workshops are led by Wisebodies Director Isa Coffey, RN, with teen apprentices, and are open to all teens.
Space 101 is a place where teenagers can have open dialogue about issues around the world, in Hudson, and in their lives. It’s a place where teenagers can develop the skills to organize for social change, and where they’re encouraged and provided with the tools to follow their own interests. Being a part of Space 101 means... to be a thinker. To have your voice heard. To be a part of a supportive community. To be active in our larger community. To be exposed to new information and new experiences. To have shared ownership over a space. To have a space to be who you are. To have a space to talk about issues you face. To have a space where you can plan how to take action to address those issues!
