Pandora’s Other Box

…to expand one’s sense of what might be possible.’

I wanted to create a group that would optimise the potential for confident artistic practice and personal growth. I invited some women creatives I knew who were seasoned Artists, practised at making work to exhibit and those that were creative but with less experience or formal training. I booked an exhibition space one or two years in advance and laid out a scaffold of regular meet-ups and latterly workshop sessions. I facilitated using my experience as an artist and principles from my training as a therapist and teacher. Important to me was to challenge the self-deprecation that I had seen emerge around the creative process and provide enough support to allow each Artist to flourish with mutual support and learning.
