On June 23, the revolution comes to Williamsburg.

On that Thursday night, "Art Revolution: Girl Style" will present the fruits of the labors of rockin’ and artistic teens and tweens at Stain.

Music will be performed by the groups Hellish Relish and Magnolia, comprised of girls, ages 9 to 12, which banded together at the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls in Downtown Brooklyn.

In addition to the live performances, a short film about teen pregnancy, "Journey to the Unknown," by 16-year-old Lizbeth Mejia, will be screened, and "Through Her Eyes," a photography exhibit by 11 to 17-year-olds, will also be on display.

"Art Revolution: Girl Style," organized by Girls for Gender Equity (GGE), is part of "V-Day: Until the Violence Stops," the two-week festival begun by "Vagina Monologues" playwright Eve Ensler.

"GGE and V-Day’s purpose is to foster the ability for girls to speak their minds and speak out against the things they think are wrong in the world," said Mandy Van Deven, a GGE co-director. "And this gives them a space where they can enact that change."

"Art Revolution: Girl Style" convenes at Stain (766 Grand St. at Humboldt Street in Williamsburg) on June 23, from 7-9 pm. Tickets are free, but call (718) 857-1393 to RSVP. For more information about V-Day, visit www.vday.org.
