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

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

We are working with artists and FWFC members Carolyn Morton and Sarah Taylor Silverwood to provide high quality art activities for women living in refuge. We are also producing 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 share creative skills and spend time together socially in covid safe ways. Feedback from our first sessions has been lovely ❤️

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