Women's Voices of Rochdale (CAN)

A space for women and girls to have a creative voice within the wider debate about women’s issues.

The project will make connections and allow for creative dialogue between women of different ages, backgrounds and perspectives, opening up conversations about the experiences of women living in Rochdale.

Older Asian women from KYP’s ESOL group and young women from M6 Theatre Company explored the place of women and girls in the world.

During 2020 – 2021, CAN created a unique project in Rochdale to create safe women-only spaces for the two groups empowering two different generations by inspiring their creativity.

Older women from Rochdale’s Kashmiri community explored their position as elders – mothers and grandmothers – through craft, writing and dance whilst a group of young women from M6 Theatre Company used film and photography to explore their experience as girls and young women in their diverse communities and wider society.
