Local people creating projects that make Southwark fantastic place to live, work and relax.
Goddess Now brings together diverse art forms from eight female artists: Rayvenn D’Clark, Victoria Burgher, Nell Lynne, Brian Dawn Chalkley, Imelda Almqvist, Kate Mieczkowska, Marguerite Horner and Katya Kan. The artists included in the exhibition come from different social, political and environmental backgrounds, but they all share a focus on under-represented individuals and social scenarios that create imbalance. The exhibition will be a unique way of offering an opportunity to develop a 'transformative' spiritual experience from a ‘female’ perspective. It offers an understanding of 'difference' and 'trauma', social or environmental, and attempts to turn them into empathy and respect – a contrast to the presiding divisive – and fearful – sentiment of these contemporary times. The gallery will host workshops for both children and adults. These sessions will be exploring 'motherhood' and ‘mother nature’ through drawing and filming. These works will form part of the exhibition.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This project is designed to celebrate women in the local community of South East London. We will be holding free workshops for children to make videos and drawings themed 'Mother and Mother Nature' to create empathy and respect for the women in Bermondsey from many different cultures. They will exhibit this work in the show and online. We will be offering female leaders in the fields of community projects, arts, education and environmentalism an opportunity to present their ideas to the audiences in free Saturday seminars. We will be offering them an opportunity to contribute to an online publication which will showcase their contribution towards positive change in environmentalism and social improvement. We hope to raise awareness of positive change to improve social and natural environments. Importantly, we want to encourage children who have a bias towards the creative field to be encouraged to study further and develop their confidence, skills and imagination.
