Many Voices Exhibition

‘Many Voices’ is a celebration of women and girls in Calderdale.

This three-year community partnership project between Square Chapel Arts Centre and Verd De Gris Arts uses different art forms and activities to bring people together. Women and girls of different ages and backgrounds explore things that matter to them by working together creatively.

This exhibition showcases some of the work from the first year of the project.  Verd De Gris delivered a range of programmes, including Behind The Mask at Calderdale Women’s Centre, Friends – a project with mothers and daughters at Beech Hill School and development of One Voice: a creative steering group of local women.  On 5th April 2019 Verd De Gris hosted an event in our Copper space,  A Forgotten Dream, with women from One Voice – the first time they have performed on a stage in front of an audience.  A packed house learned about some of the stories, histories and dreams shared by the women.

Square Chapel delivered activities exploring identity and self-expression with girls attending Mixenden Activity Centre and Queens Road Neighbourhood Centre,  including dance, drama and visual arts.  The girls at Mixenden ended their 20 week programme of dance workshops with a choreographed showcase for parents, carers and friends at the centre in March 2019.  At Queens Road, girls made selfie-frames and zines – a selection of these are included.

The exhibition will be on display on the ground floor at Square Chapel during April 2019.

Supported by  The Big Lottery Community Fund and The Community Foundation for Calderdale
