Girl Noticed – Lori Pratico Lecture
October 19, 2018 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Norfolk’s The NEON Festival 2018 along with ODU’s departments of Art and Women’s Studies bring you a lecture by artist and community activist Lori Pratico.
Pratico has served as Art Director of the Florida Youth Pride Coalition, an art mentorship program that provided at risk and lgbtq+ youth a safe environment to create individual and collaborative community projects.
Pratico also founded Girl Noticed, a community mural project. Girl Noticed makes the bold statement that it is a community’s responsibility to notice, and yield to the greatness in every girl. The project extends well beyond the wall. Pratico hosts community workshops and presentations in every state she visits. She mentors local artists on her processes and teaches them how to hold workshops within their community. Girl Noticed also awards scholarships to individuals and organizations to continue their work educating and empowering women locally.
