… our women’s project #behindthemask poetry books are out now! In Calderdale libraries, cafe bars, children’s centre .. and lots of other places where women come to meet and chat!

If you know of outlets, venues etc. please let us know … X

… last Friday verd de gris launched the booklet ‪#‎behindthemask‬ at King Cross Library in Halifax, West Yorkshire – we were so proud to have Holly Lynch with us, local MP and close friend of Jo Cox, together with Angela Everson CEO of WomenCentre and Christine Harris, Deputy Lieutenant of Calderdale and Life Vice President of the Community Foundation for Calderdale … it was a powerful and moving experience for us all and the women who took part in the project spoke with honesty, passion and eloquence.


“In these turbulent times to be amongst a group like this is so reassuring, so healing. Women can be a powerful force – whilst we all chase ourselves ragged for everyone else, when we get together it can be a force to be reckoned with.
Our understanding of people of all backgrounds and the emotional intelligence that goes with that surely must help make the world a better place!”
Christine Harris
