Girl Gang Leeds: Skate Kitchen + Skateboarding Workshop

Girl Gang Leeds: Skate Kitchen + Skateboarding Workshop
Dates and times

28 Sep 2019 6pm

Show Map

LS-Ten Skatepark

Unit 1 Kitson Road, Leeds, LS10 1NT

As part of Scalarama film festival, GIRL GANG Leeds presents a screening of Crystal Moselle's Skate Kitchen (2018) followed by an (optional!) skateboarding workshop.

The event aims to spotlight the representation of women and people of marginalised genders in skateboarding - so whether you’re a skating pro or simply have a passing interest, this event is for you!

Inspired by the real life, all-girl skate collective in Brooklyn NY, 'Skate Kitchen' tells the story of Camille, a teenaged skateboarder who becomes friends with a group of fellow women skaters, cruising the streets of Brooklyn while attempting to navigate life.

Girl Gang Leeds will be joined by:
- Rollin' With the Girls- a Leeds-based collective of female skateboarders
- Leeds Girls Can - the regional branch of a nationwide campaign advocating the presence and visibility of women in sports
- Artist Erin Brier whose photographic work has foregrounded women skateboarders.

Please note that to ensure a safe space for workshop practice, this event is exclusive to women and people of marginalised genders.
