Get creative through theatre, storytelling and art to reflect on past experiences and build alternative approaches to future relationships with Our Own Stories delivered by our partner, Safe Ground
About the workshop 

These creative sessions invite you to work together as a group in a gentle process of self-development. Using storytelling elements, theatre techniques and group dynamics, sessions are designed to stimulate discussion and creative expression. It challenges and encourages the women participating to experience new perspectives, rehearse alternative approaches, and practice new relationships.

Our Own stories is a three day programme during which a creative piece is put together by group members and a showcase of this is arranged for the final day of the programme to highlight the great work and effort put into the sessions!

Our Own Stories is held at each of our Women’s Centres* periodically throughout the year and as well as being a great creative outlet, it is also an opportunity to build positive social and support networks with peers.
