Strength Strings



Stryx have collaborated with Queen Alexandra College Community Hub Women’s Peer Support and Social Group members to deliver a series of socially engaged workshops co-created by the participants. We have invited artists Magdalena Jasiak and Hira Butt to work with the Community Services users to create a textile piece referring to strong and safe communities and spaces for women through a series of contemporary artisan meetings inspired by past times women’s meetup groups.

During the contemporary artisan meetups the community and the artists have engaged in discussions around subject matters important to each individual group member, whilst participating in artistic wellbeing activities, creating positive affirmations and building new connections.

This project is part of Birmingham 2022 Festival for the Commonwealth Games.
