Safe Spaces


QUAD Gallery


To creatively explore the concept of ‘safe spaces’ as part of a commission for FORMAT Photography festival, working with various specific groups (50+, those diagnosed with personality disorder).


In these two workshops participants were encouraged to think about what it is that makes them feel safe and soothed. Beginning with an open discussion about each person’s ideas they then constructed their real or imaginary/fantasy safe spaces using a variety of art materials.

Huge thanks to you for running it – it was so beneficial to all of us who took part!
