FINESS: FEMALES IN NATURAL EARTH AND SOCIAL SCIENCES
FINESS is a program designed to encourage girls to explore the natural and cultural world while acquiring skills to develop an empowering future. This program is designed for young women between the ages of 13-25. However, on occasion, we do offer programs for women of all ages.
Workshops are an afternoon, a day, or a weekend and are held at various locations throughout Newfoundland. They will focus on art, archaeology, earth and social sciences, and intend to challenge the physical, intellectual, and social abilities of participants. Our diverse program will give youth early training in artistic practices, photography, film, archaeology, geology, and plant identification skills along with traditional plant use knowledge. We offer these workshops with the goal of getting young women interested in field research and their cultural heritage.
