A Way Out celebrated Easter in style with our own ‘installation art event’. We showcased the talent of our beneficiaries who designed and created colourful mosaics, transforming broken tiles into stunning and meaningful pieces of art.
For some of our women the artworks are a poignant image of how, when life falls to pieces, fragments can be rescued and brought together to form something new, beautiful and long lasting. Just like the women with whom we work, each piece of art is entirely unique, each with its own individual story.
Once piece demonstrates a heart held between two hands - the women attending our drop-in explained their aim to express how A Way Out provides them with support, holding their hearts securely.
Another depicts a boat floating on the sea – a young women involved in our Blossom Project explained her life, like the sea, can turn stormy. However, the boat symbolises A Way Out protecting it’s passenger from the elements. Other times the sea is calm, with the boat providing a vessel to further the journey and enjoy the ride.
A Way Out is all of these things – unique; safe; supportive; a haven in the storm; a place to transport vulnerable women to a future where they can enjoy life’s journey.
The mosaics will remain on the walls of our Centre as a permanent reminder that beauty can be created from brokenness.
Thanks to the generous response of local individuals, groups and businesses our Easter Campaign has been a huge success. We gifted all of our beneficiaries and their children with chocolate eggs. We all have the opportunity and ability to contribute a piece towards positively transforming a broken life.
