Create and Change 2

During lockdown, we’ve had the pleasure of working with women at risk of isolation for our online Create and Change 2 project (2020-21) – and we’re amazed by their creative talents.

Focusing on wellbeing, the project encourages participants to share their stories and experiences through Kantha, a traditional South Asian form of embroidery which sees a community of women work together on different pieces, then brings them together to create a large finished product, such as a quilt or shawl.

In Summer 2021 Sampad was awarded funding from The Baring Foundation to continue vital community work with Create & Change working with Dolphin Women’s Centre in one of the city’s most deprived areas.
