Pandora Project in King's Lynn launch exhibition to celebrate life after abuse
A launch of a photography exhibition named ‘Free as a Bird; celebrating life after abuse’ is being held at St Nicholas’ Chapel, St Ann’s Street, in Lynn.
The exhibition, from local photographer Keith Osborn, will shine a light on the stories behind survivors and the hope of life after abuse.
Using words taken from survivors, Keith’s vision is to create a positive story of women who seek help, are supported through charities such as Pandora Project and find their road to freedom.
Keith’s hope behind this exhibition, is to show that there can be peace, freedom, beauty, growth, and new life after domestic abuse.
This project has come out of Keith’s collaboration with Pandora Project who are a small local charity with a vital role providing advice, emotional and practical support, and essential information to women and children living in North and West Norfolk who are affected by domestic abuse.
Launching the event will be the Queen’s representative, deputy lieutenant of Norfolk, Nick Pratt who will be in attendance. West Norfolk Artists Association are supporting the event.
The exhibition will be open to the general public on Saturday, October 2 and Sunday, October 3.
Pandora Project are also running a month long campaign in September called Paint it Purple where supporters can paint hair and nails purple to show solidarity in the support of women and children who have suffered domestic abuse.
