‘All Change’ 2015
1st April 2015 - 7th April 2015
Maya Angelou died 28th May 2014 still grieving for Mei and reeling from changes in my personal life, the virago in me found Angelou’s poetry resonated with my inner phoenix. I invited women once again to respond to the themes offered in her poem … ‘Still I Rise.’
Artists: Susanne Paisley-Day, Max Kimber, Colleen Rouse, Tracie Peisley, Rachael Dickens, Allison Lee, Jennifer Wright
I continued with the workshops, offering participants, an opportunity to exhibit, an enrichment programme of workshops and a space for sharing and discussion. The work was difficult to make, more of a right of passage than a celebration as I had imagined. I offer the themes and they are always linked to my need for process but I believe and I have seen the evidence that what one women does for herself, whether it’s speaking about her work, or exhibiting it, or taking it in a new direction… the action is felt by everyone. I am aware that I invite women to look to their darkness as well as to their light. I invited Colleen Rouse to co-facilitate with group with me, realising that the powerful processes within the group benefited from a second person.
