Creative call out: Women, lockdown & the future

WomenCentre is dedicated to women centred working. We believe it is important to amplify women’s voices through creativity and facilitate sharing learning during Covid-19 times (and beyond).

To achieve this we have encouraged all women on CO (participants, mentors, befrienders, volunteers and staff) to be creative through art to show how we have been coping in the pandemic and lockdown, and what we hope for the future.

Creative activities can help to reduce stress and worries. You can be creative on your own to relax or you can spend time being creative with others in your household. Getting pencils out, writing or drawing can help our minds rest. Art can be anything: poetry, writing, photos, drawing and more. Look out of your window, watch the sunshine & shadow on the walls, get inspired by everyday things.

Women Centred Digital Gallery: we have brought all the creative work from women together in digital gallery on our website: https://womencentre.org.uk/connecting-opportunities/women-centred-gallery/

If would like to add your work to the gallery, please send your creation (e.g. poem or photo of the art) to your keyworker or another person who supports you or to Veronika directly: veronika.susedkova@womencentre.org.uk; 07395604400 (work mobile).
