The Other Side is an initiative to create a cross-cultural exchange of dramatic storytelling amongst girls which supports their common experience, inspires leadership, and develops community.

Melanie Closs travels to Pardada-Pardadi Educational Society in Anupshahr, Uttar Pradesh, India each year to conduct drama workshops in which participants at the all-girls school create plays about their lives. Girls in New York City also create plays about their lives, facilitated by a team of 5 teaching artists.

The Voice of Leadership presents the first ever global drama exchange over radio.

Featuring Asha Kumari, 19, from Anupshahr, and Leandra Vargas, 18, from Brooklyn, these two girls present a monologue about their life story. This is a chance for them to connect, learn about each other, and become friends. Melanie Closs, director of The Other Side, and Kerri Lindstrom, Assistant Director, will be facilitating this exchange.

Tune in to learn about these girls' lives and give them a space for their voices to be heard.
