More about the project:
A combination of WEBâ€™s award winning Pathways 2MPowerment personal development training, inspirational art project and challenging documentary film, I See You will engage women from the local community and support them to see themselves and their potential through the eyes of others, challenge negative/limiting beliefs about themselves and those around them and build skills, confidence, self-esteem and aspirations for the future. We will run a series of programmes exploring beliefs/their impact on self-esteem & confidence and facilitate open and safe discussion within the groups. In addition to these personal development sessions, women will take part in painting workshops where we will produce self-portraits with a difference â€“ as they will represent the supportive and positive feedback we have received from others during the earlier group sessions. The project will culminate in a celebration and exhibition of our portraits.
