Mobilising playfulness and pleasure as a radical act within a history of women’s resistance, healing and growth, Toys for Survival started life as a series of workshops for survivors of gender-based violence. The exhibition explores sensuality and sensory pleasure through sculpture, placing the survivors’ work alongside work by Leah Miller-BiotMaria de Lima and Joanna Peace.

The Toys for Survival publication documents the project, outlines its methods and shares experiences of survival, healing and recovery. This launch will include a talk and Q&A by organisers Leah Miller-Biot and Eloise Birtwhistle.
