What we did in 2023 - biggest moments!

Free up…mind, body & soul

In 2023 we were awarded funding from OUR VOICE OUR CHOICE OUR CITY participatory budgeting session.

The aim of the project was to support local businesses and  offer some of the most deprived and culturally diverse areas of the Newport communities free introduction to and participation in  arts, skills, well-being projects and workshops with one to one and group tuition and support.

The workshops were attended by hundreds of individuals and in collaboration with local organisations and businesses. Barnabas Arts House Gallery, Robbins Lane Studios, Gallery 57, Our Chartist Heritage Charity, Newport Rising, Nettle & Bark, River Folk Pottery, YMCO, The Roots, Roma Community group, GAP centre and more. 

Hear Our Voice – 20 May 2023

The event took place on the 20th of May and was funded by Our Voice, Our Choice, Our City. It was a bridge building event for everyone, with the touch of Polish heritage, hospitality and with the exhibition about 10 local Polish women who came here with nothing and now living their amazing lives and to inspire.
We talked about many subjects, we had some guests coming from London and Cardiff, we had Polish food, booklet designed by us with articles and stories. We linked with leaders of different communities from Newport and Cardiff and we are planning to continue our campaign so the voice of different ethnic minorities can be heard.


Women of newport international women’s day celebrations and our official launch event

On the 10th March 2023 we organised our mini event celebrating International Women’s Day, but also used the opportunity to officially launch Women of Newport new board and plans for 2023.

We received our very first funds – three exactly and we were super excited to share the great news!

We also displayed Women of Newport first exhibition for the day as a surprise. 

The event was organised at the Barnabas Arts House Gallery, our official hub at the time with Jan Martin, who was also our board member.

Our meetings were supported and hosted by Geshmak Cafe, Bar and Bistro. 

We are coming back with more from April 2024.
