‘I AM MORE THAN’ is a project set up by Equinox women’s project supporting women in the city who are experiencing homelessness to use their creative voices to tell their communities who they are and that they are not defined by homelessness or any of the many issues that run alongside it. It aims to help women to challenge their own negative belief systems about themselves and help them regain self-worth and confidence.
It is also about challenging the stigma attached to women experiencing homelessness and inviting the community to re-evaluate what they know and think. The hope is that we can close gaps and bring the women back into their community where they can be valued and supported.
We are a collaboration of agencies and are supporting women to produce all sorts of different types of artwork that we will then exhibit in The Fringe under the banner of ‘I AM MORE THAN’.
