We were delighted to be part of Bristol Zero-Tolerance's film festival and conference on gender-based violence yesterday. Work from our survivors of sexual violence project was included. It was amazing to see such a good turn out and to see so many people interested in these issues. Thank you to everyone who made this event the powerful evening it was.
Today we did our last group project of the year; working with Roma women who are homeless or unstably housed in Bristol. We worked in collaboration with The Big Issue Foundation. The work is going to be sent to The Big Issue magazine to be published. The women wanted to take portraits of themselves so that they could show people who bought the The Big Issue who they are.
After a networking event with Bristol Soup a couple of months ago we connected with Helen who runs Positive Minds. Helen was interested in SIFH+ running a project with the women that she supports who have mental health problems. Three months later we ran the hugely successful collaborative project. Our workshops looked at using photography as a tool for mental health recovery and healing.
