From One Home to Another, was an idea to develop a family history project, exploring the journey of four generations of women from my family. After a discussion with a local stakeholder, they generously said they would part fund my idea, it then became a reality, however not as a personal project instead for the community I am proud to call home, Handsworth. The project saw members of the community exploring their heritage and journey through arts activities.

There was a wide range of ethnicities and age groups who took part in the project ranging from 8 years old to-50 plus. Throughout July and August members of the community attended Law & Leisure learning shared stories of their heritage and created some beautiful and heart felt artworks.  It has been exciting delivering a community arts project again, as its been over 20 years, it's wonderful to be doing what I love, getting individuals to express themselves by engaging in hands on arts activities. Many people do not or never have had access to this type of activity or didn’t feel they had the confidence to be creative, and that is a shame because everyone is creative in their own way they just don’t know it yet!
