Amidst these challenging times, a group of women from Bangladeshi community have come together to support and help each other through online arts and crafts sessions.

Working with Padma Rao, a visual artist from Sunderland and an Islamic artist Roohia Syed-Ahmed the women have explored the notion of culture, cultural entitlement and identity through the art of Arabic Calligraphy, contemporary drawing and text.

This exhibition at Arts Centre Washington is the culmination of the project, featuring work produced during the workshops alongside the work of three professional artists.
