"Boseda not only guide me as a mentor to write a proposal for an opportunity but also helped me to understand the role of a visual artist within our communities. She helped me to write successfully an activity report for Developing Your Creative Practice grants from Arts Council England. I feel motivated when I meet her to discuss development of my creative practice."

"How do I feel about this project? Inspired, evolved, motivated, encouraged, stimulated. I enjoyed the whole project, felt included and learned that I can do certain things I did not know I could do."
Fiona, Broxtowe Women's Project (BWP) Nottingham.
"The project has made me feel that I have new strength, I've learnt a lot about myself and how creative I can be."
“‘This was so much more than the creative project it started out to be. The sessions were full of conversation and different emotions which were then represented in the individual pieces created by the women.”
Justine Wellbeing Officer, from BWP

"This project has really changed my life. I have made new friends and learnt to appreciate the buildings and the history of my surroundings so much more. I am a Muslim and many people have quite negative thoughts towards us at the moment. I have a strong belief in Allah and I think that he has given me this opportunity to make a difference in my life, by making friends and learning to see things differently through other people."
