HARDYNews

summer 2018


Our friends (and current landlords) at Waterville Creates! have exciting new plans for the building we currently operate in… which involves some major renovation. So, we’re on the move. As a small staff who love partnerships, we started looking for another organization to live with. Our theory is

sharing space + sharing ideas = collaboration!!
The good news is, we found a really great partnership opportunity with an organization on its way to Waterville. The not great news is, they won’t be here until early winter. In the meantime, we’ll be hanging out in the new Waterville co-working space: Bricks. You can still reach us by email, our PO Box, by phone (207.387.0553) or by stopping in to say hello. Can’t wait to unveil our new permanent home in a few months!


 

Hardy Girls in the Community

Whether we’re tabling at Maine Initiatives’ Social Justice Fair or attending the Racial Justice Symposium, popping in on one of Maine Women’s Policy Center’s Intergenerational Conversations, hanging out at the Yellow Tulip Project events, or on the panel at the first Maine Women’s Conference, we like to be out in the community. Are there events or organizations you think we should know about? Let us know!


Hardy Girls in Schools


Our fall calendar is filling up with school workshops. Don’t wait until there is an incident at your school before calling us in to engage your girls and gender queer folks in feeling safe, supported and empowered. To learn more about our programming and hear from our participants, visit our website.
