Hear Here is a series of 6 arts and well-being workshops for 3 groups of young women across Birmingham. We’d like you to join us as part of this pilot to help us plan and shape these workshops and add your voice to an alternative her-story of Birmingham.

Working with Lead Artist Joanne Tremarco, you will be introduced to a range of workshops that will include approaches to wellbeing from- craft, poetry, art, performance, aromatherapy, herbalism, and meditation. During these sessions we will create a space to discuss, describe and share how and who we are.    

This project is about listening and hearing the voices of Birmingham’s women, documenting their stories and supporting women to creatively represent themselves through the arts. 


As well as creating art, poems and possibly performances together we want to add your voice, your wisdom and the stories of the women you admire, and think should be remembered in the Birmingham Archives at the Library of Birmingham.

For this project to work and for you to get the most out of the sessions we would like you to commit to attending all 6 session
