Women in society can be perceived in specific ways & assumptions made about them based on how they dress. The Covid pandemic has impacted on society in many ways, not least in the way which we dress in lockdown, online & whilst socially distancing. That Dress Digital will explore & deconstruct codes of dress that will enable women to empower themselves through;dress making, oral history socially distanced performances & forums, safely streamed online. Women from the City of London and Tower hamlets will examine how codes of dress can affect women’s lives, by taking part in online dress making, oral history and performance workshops in the safety of their own home. Off The Wall Players will create a safe online space where Women will share their experiences of codes of dress & how these have shaped them. These experiences will be recorded & collated. Off The Wall Players will use the interviews, research, performances & dresses made in the workshops to create an online, digital archive.

Emergency Food Appeal for Tower Hamlets started fundraising!1 month ago
Emergency Food Appeal for Tower Hamlets
Emergency Food Appeal for Tower Hamlets joined Our Tower Hamlets1 month ago

Tower Hamlets Council is coordinating an emergency food appeal on behalf of food banks in the borough. We have seen a huge increase in the amount of people needing help with food over the course of the pandemic and as we continue through the second wave, this service remains vital. Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve been able to support 31 food banks to help 6,000 residents a week access food. However, the high and ongoing cost of dealing with Covid-19, as well as future uncertainty around local government funding, is placing a heavy financial burden on the council. We are asking partners, local businesses, staff and residents to please donate to our urgent appeal. We need your help to raise at least £5,000 a month towards our appeal so we can continue to buy and distribute food to local food banks. The overall amount of money needed is significant, but this contribution from our communities will be greatly appreciated.
