“Faces of New Jersey Women,” a Spotlight on Girls Television & New Media Consortium production, honors the power and beauty of New Jersey girls and women. The Spotlight project for Newark’s Prudential Arena outdoor screen features themes reflected in the titles of two clips:

Sphere: Transmission of Wisdom from Women to Girls,” and,

Mandorla: Generating Cross-cultural Connections. (A –mandorla– is the almond-shaped segment that is created when two circles partly overlap. Mandorlas symbolize the healing of schism; reconciliation.) A montage of symbolic graphics and engaging portraiture, the project recognizes and celebrates New Jersey; one of the most cosmopolitan, ethnically and religiously diverse states in the country. The process of creating “Faces of New Jersey Women” which brought together hundreds of girls and women of all ages from across the state, was transformative for everyone involved. The project provided an opportunity for the young women of the Newark, Spotlight on Girls all-girl TV crew and their collaborators to hone their production skills. But further, “Faces of New Jersey Women” offered the state’s girls and women an uplifting occasion to connect in very personal way with women from around the world,who are now our neighbors in cities and suburbs throughout the state.
