Stories from Women of Ashford

with stronger faith dress

With Stronger Faith

Strong women in Ashford who have had the faith to survive and thrive are contributing their stories to create a unique dress of empowerment. This dress will be worn by Sam Turnbull a local resident and presenter on Radio Ashford, when she comperes the main stage at this year’s Create Festival in July, the first female to do so. Sam’s dress will incorporate hand written exerts from the stories which are contributed. We hope to run an exhibition alongside the project, showcasing the creative process, the stories and imagery. We hope through this journey of local women coming together it will give faith to other ladies in times of adversity, through their own journeys.

We need local ladies stories so if you are or know a woman who has a story to tell and who would be happy to share this in person or anomalously either email beatthedrumpromotions18@gmail.com or post a letter to Made In Ashford, unit 26, Park Mall, Ashford, Kent, TN24 8RY.

Alternatively pop into the shop on a Monday evening from 5-7pm and get involved in the designing, making and creating a new story together making this dress. (Please ring our secret doorbell).

Stories need to be submitted by the 20th May 2019.
