The sixth Women's Palestinian Breakfast, held by us, Wollongong Friends of Palestine and South Coast Labour Council this morning was a lovely gathering, in solidarity.

As the genocide continues, we believe it is important to come together as a community, to acknowledge and show our respect for the extraordinary strength and endurance of the women of Gaza and the West Bank, and to the Palestinian community here in Wollongong. Our hearts truly go out to them, their children, their families and their communities in this heart wrenching, unfathomable time.

Please join us at our next breakfast on the 13th June.

Women of the Illawarra.

 The Illawarra Women’s Health Centre invites you to join us on an empowering journey of creative expression as we explore the critical issue of recovery and healing for victim-survivors of gendered violence through the Women's Recovery and Healing Arts Project.

In partnership with award winning photographer Sylvia Liber from the Illawarra Mercury, acclaimed author Helena Fox from the South Coast Writers Centre and art therapist Sally Conwell, this project uses therapeutic photography, sketch art and creative writing as artistic mediums for exploring the profound journey of recovery and healing from gendered violence in a safe and supported environment. Together, we will harness the power of art and personal expression to advocate for change and promote healing. 

The Women's Recovery and Healing Arts Project will culminate in a public exhibition of works created, where participants will have the opportunity to shine a light on the importance of recovery and healing for victim-survivors of gendered violence and contribute to a broader conversation about the need for collective social action.

For more information and to receive your Participant Information Guide, please contact Emma Rodrigues on 4255 6800 or emmar@womenshealthcentre.com.au. EOI’s close 5:00pm, 19th May 2024. Places are limited.
