EMPOWER BAB fundraiser postponed

Hello friends, we have decided to postpone our EMPOWER BAB fundraiser on 16th May in response to growing concerns around COVID-19. We will reschedule as soon as we can, when it is safe for people to socialise again.

The EMPOWER BAB fundraiser will raise vital funds for Baobab Women’s Project. If you are able to support them at this difficult time we will let you know how best to do this ASAP.

Thank you so much to all the incredible submissions for our ‘EMPOWER’ postcard artwork call out. These will of course still be exhibited and sold at our future fundraiser, but in the meantime we will be sharing them online in coming weeks.

We are so grateful to you for supporting the work we do, and hope that during this difficult time we can continue to support each other through this online community that we share. We will soon be sharing a list of organisations supporting womxn in Birmingham and how people can help them.

Thank you for your ongoing kindness and support x
