My Creative Skills Virtual Exhibition
My Creative Skills is a project which allows amazing, strong women to come together, learn new skills and develop friendships and a network of support. Not only do we use the sessions to create art, we also use them as a space to talk to each other, provide each other with support and advice and develop friendships.
We have been so lucky to get support from different funders throughout the years. These current sessions are funded by the University of Greenwich, a civic university that is committed to working with local communities in south east London. In March 2020 we had to suspend our face-to-face sessions due to the COVID 19 emergency.
However, we quickly felt the desire, need and importance to continue to connect. We all learnt new skills and adjusted to a new form of communication. Despite the physical distance, thanks to our weekly online meetings, we are feeling even more united. We are definitely stronger together.
We hope you enjoy our exhibition Creatively Together, which showcases work from My Creative Skills created before and during lockdown.
