Birmingham & Solihull Women’s Aid art in refuge project 💜

Our project with Birmingham & Solihull Women’s Aid is now underway. 💜

FWFC members Carolyn Morton, Sarah Taylor Silverwood and Katy Sadler are delivering a programme of art activities for women aged 16 and up who are living in refuge.

The project will also include a print and online campaign to help raise awareness of domestic violence and abuse, featuring contributions by Birmingham based poet Nafeesa Hamid and BSWA.

The art project provides opportunities for women to develop their creative skills and interests, to carve out much needed time for themselves, and to help (re)build confidence and self-esteem. It also offers a chance for women and staff to spend time together socially in covid safe ways. Feedback from our first sessions provided by Sarah and supported by BSWA staff has been lovely ❤️

This project has been made possible with generous support from Arts Council England.
