Sista Sista – Women in Revolt!

Sista Sista. A support group for LBTQI refugee and asylum seeking women. Trip to Women in Revolt! Wednesday 20th March

20 March @ 1:30 pm 4:00 pm

EXACT TIME OF THE EVENT TBC – please email to find out the details.

The Sista Sista Support Group is safe space for LBTQI refugee women who have been victims of persecution and violence because of their sexual identity. Many come from countries where homosexuality is criminalised, and suffered additional stress and discriminations as refugees and asylum seekers when they reached the UK. All these instances led them to lose self-esteem and confidence.

Micro Rainbow’s Sista Sista workshops and activities are peer-led, and a safe space for LBTQI refugee women who have been victims of persecution and violence because of their sexual identity to come together and share experiences. Sista Sista events can range from workshops with outside practitioners, to art therapy, to trips to museums.

In honour of Women’s History Month, our women’s group Sista Sista is heading to the Tate Britain’s iconic exhibition ‘Women in Revolt!’ 

The first of its kind, this exhibition explores feminist art and activism in the UK in the 1970s and 1990s.  

Come together as we explore how some of the pivotal changes that occurred for women in Britain at this time, including the opening of the first women’s refuge and the formation of the British Black Arts Movement.
