The Consequences project was created to bring together people identifying as women from across Peterborough to talk about what’s important to them. Multiple workshops were held over five months, with participants supported in drawing and doodling their responses to conversations about the things that matter to them – including lockdown, Black Lives Matter, origins of names, whether we make our own luck in life, and even preferences between dogs and cats.
The result is a website that showcases all of the work in one place, with an open invitation for more submissions.
The Consequences exhibition website will launch on August 15 and run until September 15.
Adding to the exhibition is easy – there are worksheet packs available to download or have posted to your home, complete with drawing activities and questions for you to discuss or consider, and there are also ‘pass it on’ packs that allow you to start a chain and post it to someone else to continue.
The aim of Consequences has been to bring women together from across age, religion, background and culture. The funding for the project came from the Integrated Communities Fund managed by Peterborough City Council with the support of Arts Council England.
