Womens Health Matters (Rainbow Hearts Group)
Women’s Health Matters regularly run creative sessions as part of our group work including things such as jewellery making, print making, and drawing. We recently held an exhibition at The Tetley called ‘See Me, Hear Me’ which involved women using their creativity to celebrate their diversity and unique journeys through creative writing and banner making. This was created in collaboration with the women we work with and with support from the Let’s Create Jubilee Fund.
We have also used creativity as part of our campaigning work including running sessions on women’s safety and supporting refugee rights in our Rainbow Hearts group.
Rainbow Hearts is a friendly and informal group for women of all ages seeking asylum here in Leeds. We meet weekly during term time to make friends, support each other and learn new skills. We provide sessions around topics such as self-care, well-being and healthy eating and offer creative sessions such as art and craft activities, singing and movement.
We are part of Arts Together because we believe in the power of the arts to bring people together and to build strong communities.

I am project lead for Rainbow Hearts, I think I have the best job in the world, and I love what I do! I love the variety of activities we provide at Rainbow Hearts, from singing to movement to using nature to create art. Come along and join us for our sessions!
I am a project worker for Rainbow Hearts. I lived the experience of being an asylum seeker and deeply grateful to have my job to support the women and adding moments of fun and enjoyment to their lives through the group. I also believe in the power of art in wellbeing.
