Teresa Wignall, Words Unspoken, Empowered Not Broken

Date grant awarded: April 14, 2016

The European Task Force reveals that an additional 4,607 more shelters, on top of the existing 148, are needed in Spain to help support the one in five women who find themselves a victim of violence. In Seville, Teresa Wignall is giving women a safe space to creatively express and heal through the arts through her project, Words Unspoken, Empowered Not Broken. Her project will not only allow women to express their experiences through mask making and creative writing but will address color theory, drawing techniques, painting and clay handling, ultimately resulting in an exhibition event.
