The Willow Singing Tree of Celebrating Our True Value
The Willow Singing Tree of Celebrating Our True Value was done in collaboration and support from Multicultural Cumbria, Furness Multicultural Community Forum, and Cumbria International Women's Network. Made with immigrant women, altogether there were women representing Ireland, Syria, France, Poland, Nigeria, Iran, India, Bangladesh, Germany, England, Afghanistan, Turkey, Japan, Greece, Spain and Lebanon.
"The painting done by Gabi with a theme of the willow tree representing what womanhood means, drew me very close to heart and made me feel extra special. The quote I wrote for that tree was - said ‘Shakthi ka Naam hi Naari Hai' in Hindi which means ‘Power, or strength, is the sign of womanhood'."
