Mother and Daughter Project

Mother and DaughterI am organising workshops where we will open up discussions between mothers and daughters about their lives reflecting on the past and offer an opportunity to have a photographic portrait taken with visual artist Denise Poote. 

These recorded discussions and photos will preserve a moment between generations of women, at this point in the 21st Century.  This rich resource will be developed into a performance called "I'm Glad I asked" by Michele O'Brien at Shelley Theatre in October as part of Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival

I would really love to work with diverse groups to represent all the women and their experiences in Poole.  We have organised two workshops already which will be held on: 

Wednesday 11th May 2016 at Hamworthy Library at 3-4.30  

Friday 13th May 2016 at Rossmore Library 11-12.30 


Could I ask please for your help by:

 -        Asking you to promote these to your community contacts and to your colleagues

-        Letting me know if you would like to attend a workshop – if you can bring a Daughter 16+ or a Mother to meet us all the better.

-        If you are a community group or know of one and would like to host/organise a workshop with me please contact me on 07977969080 or 01202732270.  I would like to talk to you about how best to arrange it to meet the needs of your mothers and daughters.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Poppy Fields Workshop

We worked with Limelights centre for young people to share our research, make poppies and 

talk about rememberance and the feelings we have about war.

The Call

Who's for the trench -

Who's for the trench -
Are you, my laddie?
Who'll follow French -
Will you, my laddie?
Who's fretting to begin,
Who's going out to win?
And who wants to save his skin -
Do you, my laddie?

Who's for the khaki suit -
Are you, my laddie?
Who longs to charge and shoot -
Do you, my laddie?
Who's keen on getting fit,
Who means to show his grit,
And who'd rather wait a bit -
Would you, my laddie?

Who'll earn the Empire's thanks -
Will you, my laddie?
Who'll swell the victor's ranks -
Will you, my laddie?
When that procession comes,
Banners and rolling drums -
Who'll stand and bite his thumbs -
Will you, my laddie?
