Domestic Abuse Survivors showcase art and poetry at latest D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum Exhibition

19/01/24 - A new exhibition of poetry and art created by survivors of domestic abuse has opened at the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum in Eastwood.

The exhibition is the result of creative sessions, including poetry workshops, which were held as part of White Ribbon's Wellbeing Service with women. Led by poet Penny Hughes, the workshops focused on writing poetry as a path towards ownership, discovery and transformation. Broxtowe Womens Project's new exhibition at the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum

The sessions were funded by Broxtowe Borough Council’s UK Shared Prosperity Funding.

The exhibition is open until 6 April 2024 and can be visited during the museum’s normal opening hours of Thursday – Saturday between 10.00am and 4.00pm.

Whilst there, visitors can also step back in time to experience the traditional Victorian wash house, see the parlour; a room only for special guests, feel the warmth of the fire in the kitchen and have a wander around the parental and other bedrooms. The museum’s permanent exhibition features items from Lawrence’s family and even paintings created by the author himself.
