CreateHER: The Official Educational Program of SheNYC Arts

Adapting to the current times, CreateHER is going digital! Our Fall 2020 semester will be held entirely online, and will finish with a virtual reading presentation in December. Check back in the fall for more details on how to view it. 

If you’d like to support the CreateHER program, donations are greatly appreciated! SheNYC is committed to keeping CreateHER free for all students, so we depend on donations to keep the program alive.

What is CreateHER?

CreateHER is a free course for girl-identifying or non-binary high school students interested in writing and producing for theatre. Through the program, students are given the technical and creative tools to take their creativity from an idea to reality.

CreateHER provides high-level playwriting and producing courses as well as features guest speakers who are leaders in the industry: from producers and general managers, to groundbreaking playwrights, dramaturgs, and casting directors. By the end of the semester, the students write, produce, and present a short play of their own!

​Applications now CLOSED for our Fall 2020 program!

Check back in October for applications for the Spring 2021 semester.

​*Students in the CreateHER cohort will be expected to attend all seminars, rehearsals, and the final performance*

CreateHER was recently featured on PIX11 News’s Changemakers program! Watch the segment here:

Learn From Women Leading Theatre Today

Showcase Your Own Voice

At CreateHER, every student is given the tools to write or produce an original short play. On the final day, all students present their original work, performed by professional actors, in front of an audience.
