House Of Vans x The Kills Events.

Tuesday, May 8, 2018






Vans will host the lastest 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.

Inspired by the young women of Vans' lasted campaign, "Girls Skate India", clinics and skate jams have been scheduled around the world in effort to encourage and enable women through skateboarding. "Girls Skate India" is an emotional narrative set in India that shows female skateboarders inspiring the next generation through skateboarding and D.I.Y. spot building, activities that are often considered unorthodox for girls in many areas across the globe.

Featuring Vans athletes Lizzie Armanto and Atita Verghese, "Girls Skate India" shows how Indian girls gain confidence through skateboarding and highlights how a nontraditional activity provides an outlet for them to express themselves.

Vans has mobilized around the world to teach women and girls how to skateboard through a series of global skate clinics -inviting women to learn something new alongside their peers and together inspire a new wave of women's skateboarding progression. From experts to beginners, Vans welcomes everyone to these clinics and encourages the emerging women's skate community to come together and celebrate creativity.
