From a discussion on transgender representation in cinema to a workshop on the impacts of violence, there’s plenty to do when it comes to community and cultural events coming up in Boston this week. Read on for a rundown.

Hoodline offers data-driven analysis of local happenings and trends across cities. 

‘My City, My Body,’ a multimedia performance and dialogue

Finally, on Saturday, Radical Black Girl kicks off Hibernian Hall’s new artist residency program “SOLARTS.” This is the first installment of the program’s traveling research and performance project, “My City, My Body or If Concrete Could Talk or For Those Who May Be Traumatized.”

Throughout the week, Destiny Polk — founder of Youth Options Unlimited — will lead 25 young women and girls through an exploration of the different manifestations of violence, the ways bodies harbor memories and trauma, and how individuals treat themselves after experiencing violence through movement, poetry and storytelling. Come Saturday evening, all are invited to a community forum that will feature an open dance session and showcase the program participants’ research throughout the previous week.

When: Saturday, March 23, 5-7 p.m.
