‘Still I Rise’ 2015
28th October 2015 - 3rd November 2015
The Pandora’s Other Box project settled into it’s new form and new home at Whitstable Library, where we ran two groups for the enrichment programme and a regular discussion group for any women creative while holding the theme of SKIN in mind.
Artists: Jennifer Wright, Trish Flynn, Max Kimber, Samantha Osborne, Gill Kendall, Colleen Rouse, Wendy Robinson, Tracie Peisley.
During this time I was given the opportunity through membership to Kent Creative Arts to interview women about their creative process, art, activism and life… I began with Trish Flynn who has been in the Pandora’s Other Box Project since 2004 and runs her own women’s art group called ‘Diva’s’. The interview can be heard here.
The workshops are launch pads, I invite women to experiment and take risks with new materials. Some of the original members of Pandora’s Other Box run workshops in their own specialism, such as Carol Foster – ceramics and Alma Caira-fused glass … a mutuality of shared expertise continues to flourish there is a web of support, training and further enrichment is widely available.
