Artists (including Joyce Treasure), poets and musicians (including Any O'Neill) are performing at the launch of "I am...", a new initiative from the Positive Change Arts Project.
Organiser Kerry Rush, a Peabody resident, tells us more:
"The event is a chance for people to come by and see what we're all about, whilst experiencing a wealth of talent.
"There will be art on display, poetry readings, belly dancing and live music. This event also marks the launch of the "I am..." project, an initiative set up using artistic medium to give a voice back to those affected by abuse."
An exhibition at the Free Space Gallery, a venue supporting up-and-coming artists, is scheduled for 2013. If you would like to get involved, please visit the Positive Change Arts Project website. If you would like to donate, please visit the Positive Change Arts Project funding page.
