An exhibition featuring artists who have lived experience of abuse including nine artworks and a musical piece by two artists Sarah Trouton and David Creese.

The show’s purpose is to promote the physical, psychological, and spiritual wellbeing of those who have experienced trauma and abuse in the church. Its aim is to enable those visiting the exhibition to develop compassion and competence in how we hear, stand alongside, and respond to those who have such experiences.

The Rt Revd Philip Mounstephen, Bishop of Truro, said: “We are working hard to ensure that safeguarding is a key priority right across our diocese and giving a platform to survivors and their voice is central to that. We hope this exhibition will inform and educate us and challenge visitors coming to see the artworks. We are extremely grateful to the artists, Safe Spaces and the Diocese of Newcastle for giving us the opportunity to host the exhibition here.

The exhibtion will run until 22 March. Entry is free and all are welcome.

This exhibition is a joint initiative by Truro Cathedral and the Diocese of Truro. It started life in a project between Safe Spaces and the Diocese of Newcastle.
