Redefining Leadership, Reimagining Power
Sunday, Mar 12, 2023 at 12:00 pm
Location: Digital Learning Suite
In connection with Ramadan and Women’s History Month, Redefining Leadership, Reimagining Power is a community event focused on women leaders and the many definitions of leadership including speaking up against injustices; taking care of each other and our communities; and creating films with powerful messages, such as Young Women’s Leadership School of Astoria (TYWLS) student Niyama Chowdhury’s visual poem The Light of Islam. In response to a prompt, participants can create a video about women’s leadership. Participants can also create a paper or collage animation with images of women politicians and activists or a green-screen story-time video. Visitors are invited to bring photographs of themselves to copy and use for their collage animation. This event reminds us that we are all leaders. Open for all ages.
Organized by Shireen Soliman and MoMI’s Neighborhood Council.
Free with Museum admission.
This event will run 12:00–3:00 p.m.
About the Neighborhood Council
In 2018, the Museum created a Neighborhood Council of local residents and representatives of community serving organizations. The Council provides support in the development of new programs and represents new voices in the decision-making processes of the museum. The forming of a neighborhood council is a direct result from the Cultural Plan workshops and community discussions held in 2017 at the Museum and serves to continue bringing together residents and organizers with other local cultural stakeholders from community-based organizations and cultural sites.
