Vans will host the latest skate clinic, Girls Skate Jam , on May 18 at House of Vans in Brooklyn and May 19 at House of Vans in Chicago. The events will celebrate the culture of skateboarding as Vans aims to inspire and encourage women of all ages to get on a board and skate. To further showcase the power of skateboarding, The Kills will travel to each event for a special performance .
Skateboarding is an amazing way to get girls and women to be more confident, push their limits, and discover what they are capable of. Girls Skate Jam invites women to show off their skills or learn something new at each House of Vans location from 5:00pm to 7:30pm. The event will feature members of New York City-based skateboard collective The Skate Kitchen including Nina Moran, who has previously hosted the TedTalk “Girls Belong in The (Skate) Kitchen.” In addition to the Girls Skate Jam, House of Vans will host an outdoor street market with female vendors and an ongoing art installation by Robin Eisenberg - one of the first females to ever collaborate with Thrasher Magazine. From 8:00pm to 10:00pm, doors to the House of Vans will re-open for a live performance by The Kills.
