Forty Voices, Forty Years is an exciting heritage project being led by Welsh Women’s Aid in collaboration with George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling at the University of South Wales. In recognition that women’s memories, voices and lives are often written out of our national heritage, the project aims to capture the history of Welsh Women’s Aid in our 40th year, and in doing so commemorate our work to end violence against women, with a collection of oral histories, digital stories, exhibition and archive materials from women and services who have been instrumental to our movement in Wales.
The project will not only enhance our understanding of the violence against women movement in Wales, but also improve community knowledge about violence against women and our work to prevent it. We also want to encourage reflection on our future priorities as a movement, as we work towards our shared goal of eradicating violence against women.
We are seeking the support of female volunteers with suitable skills and an understanding of and interest in the issue of violence against women in Wales to support this project. We are looking for experienced, passionate women to join us in the following roles:
Volunteers are required to support a tour of digital stories gathered via the Forty Voices, Forty Years project in locations across Wales, along with a final exhibition to be held at St Fagans National Museum of History.
