We launched our art installation at the Fixers ‘pop-up shop’ in Wrexham on 9th September and it was on display all week.
Before the launch, the MP for Wrexham, Ian Lucas, came to see our project at the shop. He told us he was impressed with the house and thought it was visually striking.
We received the following feedback from people who watched our film:
‘I think it’s great and shows the different options available for women. There are plenty of charities out there that can help.’
‘Relationships are about love not hate. It is a good project which has a friendly appeal to it. It shows women affected that they are not alone.’
‘It shows women suffering domestic violence that they are not alone and that there is help available.’
‘I found the domestic violence project very interesting. I found the video inspirational as it showed women who live in the local area overcoming domestic violence. The house is a very good idea as it represents the theme of the project. It is an extremely delicate subject that has been approached well.’
‘I think the film was a real eye-opener. It shows people who may be suffering from abuse that there is a way out and there are places that offer help and advice. The film also shows women who are suffering, that they are not alone.’
Our Fixers film projected on to the wall of our cardboard house at the 'pop-up shop' in Wrexham.
On Monday 19 August, Fixers opened a ‘pop-up shop’ in the People’s Market on Chester Street in Wrexham.
The shop will be there for four weeks, providing information and putting on display some of the fantastic work done by local Fixers like me.
BBC Radio Wales covered a story about the Fixers 'pop-up shop', and interviewed me and some fellow Fixers about our projects.
