Women from diverse backgrounds, specially BAMER and LGBTQ are invited to take part in Women’s House through fun-filled, informal conversations, collaborative, participatory workshops.
Set in the context of the centenary of suffragette movement and the ‘me too’ campaign, the Women’s House investigates female identity, domesticity and art through BAMER and LGBTQ perspectives, led by two artists Padma Rao and Miki Z.
Using creativity and art, the women can express their ideas and views, share their own experiences whilst investigating female identity, domesticity and art.
The project aims to inspire, enthuse and encourage diverse women from all walks of life to look into the status and roles of women, whilst exploring a variety of themes such as domesticity, equality, violence and abuse, voting rights and feminism. Join us to learn new skills, explore and create your story.
