Pause launched its first exhibition, entitled Our Journey Continued, on 9 March. The exhibition showcases a range of creative work from women working with the Pause programme from across the UK. In celebration of International Women’s Day, the exhibition includes creative work produced by women who are currently, or have previously worked with Pause. It is an exploration of their experiences, identity and work women have been doing with Pause over the past two years.

The opening of the exhibition, which is supported by The National Lottery Community Fund and Comic Relief, took place on 9 March at Rich Mix, London. The exhibition launch was attended by over 90 guests. It included performances by women working with Pause from across the UK.
Jules Hillier, Chief Executive of Pause and master of ceremonies at the exhibition private view said:
‘When women take the decision to join the Pause Programme, they commit to a challenging process that enables them to bring about positive change in their lives, but also to reflect and consider the experiences they have already lived. For many women, creative work like this provides a space for reflection and a platform to express their identity and experiences. Our Journey Continued is a testament to the power of these women’s experiences and the creativity across the Pause network’.
