Hope has found a home

The art mural that was created by our Rising Women group has found it’s home on display at Exeter Library.

Last year we collaborated with Exeter Library, Colab Resilient Women, Positive Light to offer out free art workshops to women who had lived experience of mental health struggles.

These workshops were facilitated and lead by local artist Hayley Watson.

The group, now named Rising Women, created this beautiful art mural that resembles strength, growth, perseverance and resilience. The mural (and mannequin that was also created during the workshops) went on tour around Exeter and has been on display at:

-Positive Light


-Northcott Theatre

-and ending at Exeter Library

We hope that this piece can represent that even through struggle there is strength and overcoming.

A huge WELL DONE to all the women that took part in this project. We are so honored that you shared this process with us. You have created something truly inspiring and beautiful.
