BWP exhibition focus of City of Literature blog piece

A free exhibition of poetry, installation art and photography inspired by the personal experiences of survivors of Domestic Abuse is the focus of a powerful blog, written by Eleanor Flowerday, from the Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature team.

An excerpt:

“Don’t Judge Me’ holds up art and literature as a powerful force for unpicking and understanding personal trauma, making powerful the voices that had been made to feel powerless by their abusers, and demonstrating that acute, yet universal anxiety towards misogynistic violence felt so widely since the first lockdown. Yet, after leaving the exhibition you feel that anxiety and fear is not what you’re supposed to feel. ‘Don’t Judge Me’ seeks to use art and words to rebuild identities, to empower, and to stand against violence and fear.”

The ‘Don’t Judge Me’ exhibition is on at the National Justice Museum until 3 January 2022.
