Chara Centre

Part of our All We Can Do programme

Since 2013 we have delivered a year-round creative residency at the Chara Centre - a residential service supporting women who are experiencing homelessness.

A team of artists offer weekly creative arts workshops. The sessions culminate in two end of term celebratory culminations of the creative work achieved by the women during the sessions. A recent project highlight was the Do You See Me? portraiture exhibition.

Stories and music have a huge role in the creative programme at the Chara Centre. By sharing our stories and life experiences through drama and music, our work encourages women to reconnect with play as adults.

The women are also invited to Citizens Theatre productions, and over the years they have enjoyed a wide variety of Citz shows. We look forward to welcoming our All We Can Participants into the newly redeveloped theatre to experience live performances.

The Citizens Theatre has a long history of working with women’s groups in the community. Find out about other Projects for Women.
