viBe Theater Experience, (viBe) provides girls, young women and nonbinary youth of color (ages 13-24) in New York City with free, high quality artistic, leadership, and academic opportunities. viBe works to empower viBeGirls to write, perform, and produce original theater, video and music about the real-life issues they face daily. viBe's performing arts and professional development programming provide viBeGirls a platform where they can amplify their voices, and “Speak Truth to Power,” by creating an artistic response to the world around them.
viBe hosts workshops delivering useful techniques for collaborative art-making, specifically and intentionally with girls and young women of color. Many girls and young women of color face unique challenges in finding safer spaces to express themselves, uncensored and untethered by restrictions on what they say, how they speak, and/or mis-perceptions about their capabilities.

viBe performances are professionally produced in notable theatrical venues across NYC. viBe emphasizes the power of narrative and seeks to create performances that move the lived experiences of girls and young women of color from “margin to center.” We believe that by centering the narratives of those most vulnerable, communities can uncover the everyday ways to create more healthful conditions, for girls and young women of color in this country, and the world.
