United Through Art  

Artist Hangama Obaidullah invites women from refugee and migrant backgrounds, to take part in a free art class in Woden or Tuggeranong during term 3 & 4.

The United Through Art class aims to provide an opportunity for community education, social connection and inclusion within an arts context. The classes aims to enable migrant women to better navigate and understand Australian culture, systems and language and their rights and opportunities while building and developing artistic skills.

United Through Art is an arts diversity program that will deliver a series of free art workshops across two locations in the South of Canberra, Woden Library and Tuggeranong Arts Centre. This term-based art class will meet in Woden and Tuggeranong at the following times and locations:

WHEN: Wednesdays 10am – 2pm, commencing 27 July at Tuggeranong Arts Centre

WHEN: Thursdays 10am – 2pm, commencing 28 July at Woden Library, Community Room 2

COST: The classes are free, but registrations are essential. Please register for the class here.

Facilitated and lead by artist, Hangama Obaidullah, the women will explore a range of artistic media and develop their artistic skills, alongside guest speakers and discussion about women’s safety, rights, health, family, policing and family violence services. Participants will build their artistic skills, confidence, independence and social supports while understanding their rights in Australia and available support services, building their capacity to address violence against women and children, experienced by themselves or by other women in their communities. Find out more about Hangama Obiadullah in this interview with Vogue.
