A weekly space by and for Hudson teens.
Thursdays 4pm - 7pm, as well as special events and workshops
Ages 13 and up
Growing out of last year’s Space 101 and the past two summers of the Social Justice Leadership Academy, Space 101 is a space for teenagers in Hudson to have as their own. It's 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. This fall, the teens of Space 101 have been cooking meals, watching films, hosting public events and traveling for workshops, speeches and plays. Future workshops, trips and activities might include: theater, spoken word, fashion design, music production, dance and choreography, photography, radio production, video production, and youth-led organizing and education.
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!
All of our activities -- whether they’re focused around film, music, theater, cooking, etc. -- have an emphasis on youth empowerment. We are always pushing each other to think critically, to analyze and engage with the world around us, and to draw from own experiences and passions. Our goal is to support young people in developing meaningful and supportive relationships, and in becoming leaders within their own lives and communities. Space 101 is run in partnership with the Staley B. Keith Social Justice Center.
