'Mirror Mirror In My Hand' by Say Women for Village Storytelling Festival 2022
05/07/22 - 10/07/22
Mirror Mirror was a visual exploration and re-examination of popular myth, story and fairytale culture, putting Girls and Women at the front and centre. The works were created in partnership with the Village Storytelling Centre by the young women supported by the charity, Say Women, which offers support for women aged 16 to 25 who are survivors of sexual violence and/or homelessness.
We hold the mirror. We control the reflections. We can angle it, we can shift it, we can reframe the image. We can change the perceptions. We want to reframe the narratives in the stories you’ve heard. we are not the King’s wives or the Miller’s daughters. We are the Girls and Women – and we have a life and a voice.
