See Me, Hear Me
Inspired by the Queen's Jubilee, funded by Arts Council England and in partnership with The Tetley, Women's Health Matters hosted See Me, Hear Me on May 25th, 2022; an event that bought together the many women WHM supports to celebrate their diversity and unique journeys through creativity.
Queen Elizabeth II appears in over 1,000 portraits in collections across the UK. With support from the Let's Create Jubilee Fund, women working with WHM collaborated to create backdrops for their own portraits taken as part of the celebratory See Me, Hear Me Event.
Women also worked alongside creative writing students from Leeds Art University to create written pieces about their lives and experiences.
The backdrops and audio recordings of their written pieces are currently on display at The Tetley. We invite you all to visit, hear the stories of the women we support and consider the differing visibility of women in public life.
You are welcome to take your own photo in front of the backdrops - don't forget to tag us in any social media posts!

As part of our See Me, Hear Me Event, women spent time with students from Leeds Beckett University learning about creative writing and putting together their own pieces.
