In collaboration with Push Worcester and Woo Skates, youth participants experiment with paint, spray paint, markers, stickers, collage, and more to design their own skateboards and roller skates, showcase them to their community, and learn to skate with older peers. This program provides space for young girls and women to creatively and positively express their identities while developing new skills and passions; by focusing this event specifically for girls and women, Main IDEA will be providing much-needed female representation in a predominantly male-oriented environment, thus empowering and encouraging young girls to express their creativity and learn to skate among other female peers.
