In her words exhibition in the age of Austerity
Venue: The Gallery At St. George’s House
When: 21/07/2018 – 28/09/2018
The “In Her Words” exhibition is a culmination of work from two art projects ran by Breakdown Bolton exploring Women’s inner lives and the effects of Austerity on people with lived experience of mental illness.
The group sees the artwork made by the participants as a celebration of creativity and peer support, both valuable resources for us all. The workshops were a combination of creative writing and conceptual art exploring topics such as: freedom, restraint, value, empowerment, budget cuts, politics, identity and societal roles.
The exhibition also features a celebration of the Suffragette Movement made by Drummond Street Craft and culture, Dramatic Action, Bank Top Craft Group and Xplode Magazine.
Thank you to Tesco and Bolton CVS for funding this journey.
