This research project has been a partnership between Cole & Joslin with Brighton Women's Centre and Phoenix Arts Space.

After six-months of weekly workshops, work was presented in different format in Phoenix's Project Space, March 2023.

The success of the project has led to an invitation to be part of the Community Takeover exhibition at Phoenix in September 2023. Cole & Joslin will continue to work with the women on a monthly basis to develop and refine the work for this event.

Reflecting on the week-long residency, comments included:

"It was awe-inspiring, I felt a sense of wonder. Everyone's work felt powerful and empowering. There was teamwork on display. To see it all together felt amazing"

"My heart melted when I heard what someone wrote after hearing my poem"

"I felt loved and looked after. I also felt camaraderie. My guard has been dropped a lot and I feel safe with you guys"

"How proud I felt that everyone was coming to see it, to see our work"
