I feel weak as a woman when I walk around the streets of London on my own. When I come here and walk in through the door, I feel a strength from the other women. I have come home.

Spare Tyre took to the stage with Picture Me, a platform for women who have experienced violence. Picture Me celebrated the voices of the women that Spare Tyre has been working with over the past year from 3 women’s organisations across London. Women from multiple generations and culturally diverse backgrounds spoke out and shared painful memories of violence, transforming them into uplifting stories through a range of art forms, exploring themes of strength and empowerment.

Picture Me took place at St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace on Friday 14th June 2013.
