40 Women and Girls

Due to the ongoing COVID situation we will be postponing the 40 Women and Girls launch until International Women’s Day – 8th March 2022.

Background:
For our 40th anniversary, we are going to light up our building in 2021 with the photographs and stories of 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. We are looking for Women & Girls who have made a difference, championed the centre and become inspirational role-models through our 40 years.

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.
