On 24th March 2017 we collaborated with local artist Eliyah Qureshi to exhibit her collection on Honour Abuse, commissioned by Educate2Eradicate at Waltham Forest Town Hall.
The exhibition was entitled, 'Let's make her birth an honour, not her death.' The three original paintings were put on display for the evening and formed a part of a larger International Women's Day event, organised by the E2E team.
The unveiling of art was followed by a welcome from Arifa Nasim and a chance to chat to the artist, Eliyah at the drinks reception. Canapés were kindly made and donated by Wilma Dominique and her Catering students from Walthamstow School for Girls.
The panel discussion on Consent featured:
Cllr Grace Williams: Cabinet Member for Children and Young People.
Harry Phinda: Co-Founder of Youth for Change, Activist and Campaigner on FGM and Child Marriage.
Emmeline May: Blogger and Author of Viral blog and animation 'Consent and Tea.'
Abda Khan: Solicitor and Author of 'Stained'. Shortlisted for the Asian Women of Achievement Awards 2017
