The fall is female at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, with a season of arts and cultural programs showcasing the power, diversity, and fierceness of today’s female creators, innovators, and agents of change.
From a thought-provoking art installation to intimate conversations with some of today’s most interesting people, a physically integrated dance performance to unique musical experiences, audiences will be treated all season. All programs cost $20 for members and $25 for the public to attend, unless otherwise noted. The schedule is below and complete details and ticket information can be found at jccmanhattan.org/fall-is-female or by calling 646.505.5708.
“From a former United Nations ambassador to a trans activist/actress and the journalistic duo who broke the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the community will be challenged and inspired while meeting some of our society’s greatest contemporary thinkers,” said Megan Whitman, director of the JCC’s Lambert Center for Arts and Ideas.
