Inspired by the Consciousness Raising groups that emerged from the Women’s Movement in the 1960s, Helen has instigated a series of open discussions with a group of women who meet regularly at Platform and who have shared thoughts on education and work / housework, as well as reflecting on experiences of being daughters, sisters, wives, mothers and grandmothers. Through looking at these women’s lives, marked by commonalities and difference, remarkable events and mundane ones, this new exhibition celebrates the strength, resilience and beauty that exists within everyday experience.
