40 Women and Girls

We want to light up our building in 2021 for our 40th anniversary with the photographs and stories of 40 women and girls at the heart of the Girls Club.

We need your help to make it happen by nominating your heroes. We are looking for 40 women and girls who have been the heartbeat of our community from 1981 to 2021. They could be 5 or 95, estate matriarchs or teenage peer educators, Tuesday clubbers and now nannas. Trustees, staff, volunteers and members, past and present. Living or past over, the choice is yours. We are looking for Women & Girls who have made a difference, championed the centre and become inspirational role-models through our 40 years.

Nominate your heroes here below or pick up a form from the Centre between 9:30-2:30pm Monday – Friday. Nominations close on Monday 21st September 2020.

40 Women and Girls is supported through Newcastle City Council’s Artists in Residence programme. Writer Catrina McHugh MBE and photojournalist Phyllis Christopher have been commissioned to gather the stories and portraits which will be launched on International Women’s Day 2021 with a book, an exhibition and a large-scale projection of the images on the building.
