The Women’s Voices Project offers women from all walks of life the opportunity to tell their stories, meet new people and get creative. Over the last few months, a small team of local female community artists including a dancer, a theatre director, a musician and a writer, have been gathering real-life testimonies and drinking tea with women across the region. The project culminates in a series of exciting celebratory events in County Durham and Darlington which will bring everyone together to share the stories, creativity and achievements of local women.

Creative Darlington have given The Women’s Voices Project the opportunity to engage with local women within Darlington.  With the help of the Creative Darlington grant we have been able to give local women from Darlington the opportunity to be a part of our creative process and perform alongside professional artists in our showcasing event.  The support the project has received has helped to develop good working relationships between local performance artists who are impassioned to create work that engages with their communities.
