TRC Arts stall to celebrate International Women's Day

As part of Trafford Rape Crisis (TRC) outreach in the community work on March 8th 2012 we celebrated International Womens Week by joining Trafford Council and Stretford Leisure Centre in their commitment to embracing 2012 as the year of The London Olympic Games. Women were invited to try out new fun sports, keep fit activities and learn how to make delicious healthy food. Trafford Rape Crisis held an Arts stall with Barbara our artist in residence and we invited everybody to join us and make a handmade card for a woman in your life. Lots of people took the opportunity to make mothers cards, children made their own wonderful artistic creations too. We also invited people to sign a huge banner created by TRC; asking people to write anything about being a woman and or International Womens Day...the result was a wonderful piece of art with some amazing comments which were able to showcase at the launch of our Black Asian and Minority Ethnic Women's services at the Declaring the Activism of Black Feminist Theory Convention the next day.

Thank you to all who made this event very special.  Here are some pictures from the event.
