In 2019 Dream Of Life ran a series of advanced painting workshops involving learning about narrative, characters, storytelling and abstraction for young women aged 13-19.

The project culminated in a immersive event at Richmix, as part of the TakeOver festival for young people.

We have benefited the community by providing a safe supported space for young women age 13-19 experiencing isolation and anxiety to come together to form a supportive community. We work closely with the families and carers of the young women participant and know through regular feedback and updates that many of the young women we have worked with have made significant progress in their life for example - improved school attendance, going onto further education and training and overall a reduction is isolation and an increase in positive wellbeing as a result of engagement with Dream of Life C.I.C.


Project was delivered by Dream Of Life, funded by National Lottery Awards for All.
