“A lot of the work that women do is behind the scenes, often unpaid, and not rewarded. The sorts of images and paintings we see in public spaces have historically shown a mainly male, privileged voice. I want to create portraits that change this narrative we have seen throughout history by celebrating and honouring these women.” . . @sarahtaylorsilverwood talks about The Women’s Honour Award.

The Women’s Honour Award

STORIES

  “Projects like The Women’s Honour Award are really important. Women should be recognised for the work they contribute to society. There are a lot of inspiring women out there, looking after their families and caring for others who have never thought that they’ve got skills- they do! They might not have the certificate to […]


This is @corinnenoordenbos taking over the #Multistory Instagram to highlight the launch of my book and exhibition Black Country Lungs. This is Janice. She suffers from #COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). When Multistory invited me to the Black Country, I took the opportunity to explore health issues. Statistics showed that this post- industrial community has more health-related problems than other areas of the UK. I decided to focus on COPD and lung problems. I was curious about the connection between the Black Country and ‘black lungs’. . . The exhibition is now on show @lightwoodshouse until 31 May 2018. The book can be purchased from the Multistory shop. . .
