'Supports for Women' is a creative learning project tailored to the needs of women living in County Leitrim who have been adversely affected by the troubles in the North. The project will run between Sep '09 and Aug '10. It aims to deal with issues of trauma and release these issues in a creative way.
I will work with the group over 5 classes to help them express ideas in a 'Creative Journal'. This form of journalling is a great way to kick-start creativity and I hope to provide the group with some very simple techniques to help them find their creative voices. Using journals in this way has helped me develop my own ideas for my work and I find it very inspiring.
