'I left the group feeling very inspired and free'
 - Blue Skies participant

During the project, women who've experienced violence explored what it means to dream, hope and aspire. The themes - transformation, perspectives, imagination, blue skies, revival and reflection - all played a part in aiding growth, and healing.

'People who've experienced violence often alternate between seeing themselves either as victims or survivors. In this group we could begin to see ourselves as both of these but also as creators.'
 - Blue Skies participant
