So excited to introduce our new director Gloria Saya:

My name is Gloria ,I was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo . I was raised by an Africanist father and mother . I undertook my studies at Kinshasa Academy of Fine Arts. I am a multi-disciplinary visual artist who trained in multiple disciplines, including textiles, sculpture, ceramics, painting, and interior design.
I ran my own studio, worked at Memling Art Gallery, and exhibited throughout the country. After moving to the UK, I became an Associate Artist at Chuck Gallery, and exhibited alongside other female artists at exhibitions including the Greater Manchester Police Headquarters, Pankhurst in the Park (Alexandra Park), HOME,
Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester International Festival, Whitworth Gallery, Zellij Arts, Longsight Library, and the Centre for International Women Artists (CIWA).

As an artist, I am heavily influenced by her African origins, respecting nature, and society. I love to learn new things and hate waste.

As a workshop leader, I was part of the Travelling Heritage Bureau and Girlhood projects working with Housing Associations, SureStart centres, Manchester Gallery and CIWA. I was a creative project worker with Creative City, where I was teaching women new skills in craft, arts, and empowering .I am currently a board member and studio artist with Global Arts Manchester.. Where I am doing many arts

We have to make art.

Women are interrupted in the art making process continually. Society makes calls on us that can get in the way, it makes assumptions about us that deter us from our uniqueness

This exhibition features the work of 8 women artists who have been collaborating for the last 4 years through Global Arts Manchester and are currently working in partnership with the School of Creativity for the next 12 months.

As women our work reflects our place(s) in the world. Our various loves.

Changing the world
Our impatience with a patriarchy that holds us, humanity, in a place of subjugation.

Our creativity and energy , our synergy and unity,

As activitsts we fight for our right to be defined as human, we create our own truths and our own defintions.

This exhibitions also celebrates our return to being in space together

The work is a mixture of both previous practice and new work being created through Global Arts experimental commissioning process that demands that we make art.

In this way this exhibition is a living process. It will change and flow through the next 3 months.

We invite you to come in over and again to witness the work, perhaps to help shape the work and to engage us ( an d each other) in discsussion about the work.

We hope this will also stand a s springboard into ongoing collaborations.
