This Girls Story Organization in Partnership with DuCAP is excited to announce the upcoming Art Show Pop Up eligible for girls 13-19. We are excited you are interested in being a part of our FIRST in-person art show!
This Girls Story (TGS) is a quarterly girl-led magazine that showcases contributions from girls ages 13-19. With the possible exception of some editorial information, the magazine consists of completely girl-supplied content. The mission of TGS is to provide a creative platform where teens who identify as girls can express themselves, gain real life professional experience, and build confidence.
Through this art show, you will also have the opportunity to be published through the global magazine in its summer issue.

Theme for Art Show: 
“Nostalgia” is our Summer 2024 theme! Some ideas our editing team wants to share to get you started in the right direction:
  • Memories you love
  • What makes you nostalgic
  • What do you miss
We accumulate many memories over our lifetime. Memories we cherish, memories we hate, and memories that seem inconsequential can all be ones we look back on with utmost nostalgia. We invite you to share the things you remember, and miss.
