She can be anything is a cross community and cross border women development project which seeks to foster connectivity between women along the border area as well as create opportunity for friendship, a deepening of an awareness of diversity through a creative skills based programme of activities. The programme will focus on women’s empowerment, and support women to be confident in their real selves and their own creative expression. It is hoped the programme will encourage women to be fully participative within the community.
The project will roll out over two years with year one open to a wider age group of women and year two targeting young adult women. Both programmes of activities will focus on image-making and expression, creating opportunities for women to explore the visual representation of our selves as women.
We are delighted that filmmaker Róisín Loughrey, artist facilitator Rachel Webb and others are supporting this project.
