Our mission is to explore and expand the boundaries of using art as a therapeutic tool for survivors of Sexual and Domestic Violence. Whilst reconnecting people with the wisdom and power of the ‘Feminine'. This five-day exhibition in East London will be an inspiring combination of immersive sensory art, performance, mythological storytelling and healing workshops. Allowing the audience to both appreciate and interact with the work.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This project is a beacon of hope in such turbulent times. Tower Hamlets had the sixth highest rate of recorded sexual offences in England (2018) and quarantine measures have seen reported rates of domestic abuse soar. We believe art has the power to heal and we want to share this innovative approach with everyone, especially survivors. Using a community oriented and inclusive approach, this exhibition will be a place to reawaken our connection the ‘Feminine’. The ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’ resides within everyone regardless of gender. It’s the Yin and Yang of our being. Two contrasting yet balancing sets of energy that are embodied in everyone, and we need both to achieve our highest potential - the balance is off and it needs restoring. Now, more than ever, we need the creative nurturing energy of the ‘feminine’. We are creating a legacy to build on and this is just the start. Please help us bring accessible and healing art to East London and beyond!
