Connecting and Empowering Women through the Arts:
Ewer is an old word for a jug, its shape is reminiscent of the female form and extends to the idea of the container-keeper-receiver, giver and guardian of life, nourishment and stories. New and Newer relates to the notion of revival, revitalization, growth, recognition of experience, rooting and flourishing.
This creative project is led by Artistic Director Laura Kenyon and combines multiple art forms including dance, speech and visual arts, to connect womxn and address issues related to gender inequalities, sexual abuse and domestic violence. WomanEwer has created a live performance, led workshops for community groups and created a short film.
Professor Angela Pickard, Director of Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health is researching and evaluating the project.
