We recently asked members of the WildFires Network to give some news of what they are up to and what they have on the horizon. Mhairi Bell-Moodie told us about her project Nevertheless, She Persisted which has been ongoing for the past year and will be launched next month to coincide with International Women's Day. Here, Mhairi gives some of the background to the work:
I've been working on a project for the last year called Nevertheless, She Persisted. The project acknowledges some of the struggles women face - child loss, breast cancer, sexual abuse, domestic abuse, weight issues, mental illness, addiction, gender re-assignment and sexual fluidity - and celebrates their survival through these traumas.
The project will be released on March 8th 2018 - International Women's Day - and will be exhibited in Edinburgh later in the year. Earlier this month, some of the women involved in the project met each other for the very first time.
Come back to see more of Mhairi's project once it is launched and in the meantime additional info can be found at www.mhairibellmoodie.com/nevertheless-she-persisted
