Power of Women.
This is our arts and empowerment programme for girls aged under 12, run in partnership with Miss Trout and Clifton Green Primary School. Weekly workshops provide girls with a safe space to be creative, expressive and to build healthy relationships with other girls, exploring topics of body image, role models, periods and gender inequality.
Through creative writing, art and performance participants explore healthy relationships, body confidence and consent, as well as being able to identify people and services they can approach for support with their health and wellbeing.
- 80% of our participants have an increased confidence and self-esteem.
- 40% said they’d made new friends.
- 40% said they were having more conversations about health and wellbeing outside of our workshops.
- 40% said they now have an increased awareness of issues affecting their age group.
The artwork produced from POW can be used to encourage more vital conversations around gender equality and female empowerment. See below for examples.
