Theatre Guild

Maybe you perform on Broadway 8 times a week. Maybe you secretly wrote a script for a 3-hour drama chronicling the life of Taylor Swift. Maybe you used to be a hard-core theatre nerd, but have struggled to find the right outlet to jump back in. Or maybe you’ve never done theatre but have always wanted to get involved.
 

Bring anything you're working on, and we'll start off the meeting with our usual show and tell. We'll also have a discussion surrounding the topic of "Creative Habits" and how to make creative growth part of our daily routines.

Growing Fairness: Social Justice Film Screening
Jul

Growing Fairness: Social Justice Film Screening

During the month of July, Faith in New York, is organizing faith communities around NYC to participate in a letter writing campaign to support a bill that will help move all schools in New York to embrace approaches to school discipline that adopt best practices, keep schoolchildren in school, and eliminate racial inequities that are driving negative academic outcomes for students of color. The legislation will create strong state policies that support schools in building the skills and capacities of students and adults to constructively resolve conflict, and create learning environments that value every person. At Forefront we believe in a just school system and safe discipline practices where every child has the chance to thrive as God created them.

In addressing this social justice issue, we're screening a short documentary film (44 min.) called GROWING FAIRNESS about “growing” restorative justice practices in public schools in New York City and Oakland, CA. Often, passionate educators lead these cultural shifts in schools. Growing Fairness examines the historical and political context for their resistance against the norm. It also shares the voices of youth who have seized the opportunity to lead, transforming their schools and themselves in the process. Check out the trailer below.

Join us at WeWork for a short screening and discussion on the issue and to learn more about how you can support the FINY letter writing campaign with us. Beer, coffee, tea and popcorn will be served with the movie. Screening begins at 7:00pm. Please RSVP to reserve a spot. All are welcome.

If you cannot join us for the screening, but would like to participate in writing to our local representatives, you can find a form letter to print and mail below.

Relationship Workshop for Single Women
Jul

Relationship Workshop for Single Women

Psychotherapist Melissa King, LMHC, NCC will be leading a workshop in our new WeWork space for single women.

Finding a partner who excites you, who you feel chemistry with, who shares your faith and values, who feels a mutual attraction to you, and is available for a relationship with you, can feel like an impossible challenge. This workshop and group discussion will center around finding a partner by throwing out the dating rule books, aligning yourself with your needs and values, and increasing feelings of self-acceptance so that you can improve your chances of finding a good match. We'll also talk about common challenges that many relationships and marriages face and how you can be prepared. And since there are no guarantees for finding a partner, we'll also discuss strategies to address the loss felt around the experience of singleness.

Please RSVP below.
