'What Community Means To Me'

2nd December 2019


We are delighted to announce that we have received a National Lottery Community Fund grant to run a Community Arts Project for women, What Community Means to Me.


We will be offering a mix of one-off workshops and series of participatory song writing workshops from January to March 2020 in Birmingham. We will create new songs to be shared on-line and in workshops. You don’t need any previous musical experience to take part – just come along to meet new women and talk and sing together.


Our partners include:

Anawim

ASIRT 

George Dixon Primary School

Malachi

Moseley Community Hub at The School of Art

The Real Junk Food Project

Refugee Action in the West Midlands

South Birmingham Women’s Enterprise Hub

St George’s school, Ladywood.


Working with our community partners will enable us to offer workshops to women who are disadvantaged: women experiencing domestic violence and abuse; women who are asylum seekers or refugees; women with mental health issues; women who feel lonely and socially isolated; and mothers in deprived communities in Birmingham.


The project will culminate in a sharing event in Birmingham City Centre to celebrate International Women’s Day in March 2020, showcasing the voices of disadvantaged or isolated women and girls from the city. At this event, participants from the workshops will share their lyrics and songs with each other and with members of the public.


Please get in touch with us if you would like to support the project or introduce us to women who would like to participate. Contact Lou Atkin lou.atkin@inhershoes.org.uk or through our website http://inhershoes.org.uk and follow us on Twitter @InHerShoes5
