Boxing + Activist Art

Fearless Fighters!

What do you fight for? At Girls Garage, we don’t just believe in swinging hammers and rocking the power tools; we believe that girls have formidable voices and that together we are a powerful force of activism. Whoever you are and wherever you’re from, we’re all fighting for something.

Teen girls: Join us for a half-day workshop that will channel your fighter spirit through both physical and creative work. Over the course of 4 hours, we’ll participate in a group boxing lesson (60 minutes) with our friends next door at Phoenix Gym, and also screenprint and blockprint customized “Fear Less __(fill in the blank)__ More” t-shirts to wear our activism proudly. Together we’ll feel our physical power as well as the power of our creative voices as young women.

This workshop is for teen girls ages 13-19. Participants should bring a light-colored cotton t-shirt for screenprinting, and wear (or bring) clothes to work out and sweat in. All boxing gear will be provided, and all boxing instruction will be non-contact. Girls will practice technique and work on the punching bags. All athletic and physical levels are welcome! Girls are welcome to bring snacks, bars, or a light lunch also.
