Friday 8th March: International Women's Day via The W Project

 The W Project have published their first book, titled "The Journey is the Treasure" to mark International Women’s Day 2013 = today! Here are photos from the launch last evening which took place at Suzy P's gallery "The Depot" in Clapton.  Here she is with Poppy Chancellor and in the photo below are The W Project founders Teo and Loren.  In its 3rd year of operation, the girls have switched from a gallery showcase to a printed almanac of their affiliated artists.  The book explores the work of 33 established and emerging talented females working across the creative industries. Each has been asked to contribute a representation of the journey they have taken in their careers to date. This takes the form of: an early piece of work from the individuals’ career, a current piece, and a brief description explaining the choice of work.  The foreword of the book has been written by journalist, editor and curator, Liz Farrelly (Liz has worked on over 35 books, including Designers’ Identities; For Love and Money; Street Art; Stick ‘Em Up; and Zines).

 The proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the women’s charity Refuge, which provides amazing support to women and children escaping domestic violence in the UK.  Find out more about the wonderful work that Refuge is doing at REFUGE.ORG.UK.

Nice inspirational article. We should not discriminate between male and female. I love my mom, sister and friends. Also respect to women as they desire.
