SPAN, Know Your Bristol On the Move – 2014
In 2014 I had the pleasure of working with Single Parent Action Network (SPAN) and Professor Josie McLellan of the University of Bristol on a three-month community history project, part of Know Your Bristol On The Move.
It was one of the best history-making experiences I’ve had – truly collaborative, inspiring and empowering. And the end result – an exhibition about women and work in East Bristol – was fantastic.
Since 2014 a lot has happened. SPAN no longer exists in the form it did and the Silai Centre – where the exhibition was displayed, once an incredible community space run by working-class, women of colour – has shut down.
