"From Iraq, Kabballah, Basra, Baghdad, a mother tells of fragments from her life today living Iraq; the (her) hope, the dreams, the fright, for a never-ending war and life under ISIS in Mosul..."

Aim of the Event: 
We are inviting anyone interested in ‘Women representing Women’ who may or may not identify as Refugee, Asylum Seekers, International, British or Welsh to co-create a large network (of men and women) to develop a strategy for creative outputs . This will be an on-going project that is rooted in current academic research in participatory co-produced film, theatre and other performative platforms as ‘HER VOICES SEEN’.

Together we will mentor eachother as a diverse creatives who truly represent Wales and our global experiences.

This conference / performance weekend will introduce collaborative methods of representation, where social justice meets testimonial voice. Artists, who are experts in Theatre Reportage, Forum Theatre, Testimonial Arts and Collaborative Art-Making will share their methods and creative outputs to workshop ideas with you over the two days. These ideas will be shared as an informal hybrid performance that presents the testimonial voice of women, collaboratively.
