About the research

This workshop is part of a series of online creative workshops and virtual cafés to help you story your lived experience of gender-based violence during the Covid-19 pandemic. For people who live in the UK and women only (including transwomen and non-binary people).

The immobilities of gender-based violence during the Covid-19 pandemic is a research project using stories to study GBV in the pandemic. In particular, we're looking at changes in the ways we use and move around spaces and how the restrictions in movement has affected experiences of GBV.

We value creative work in this research and have created a series of workshops and creative cafés to help you tell your story - this can be through words (speaking or writing), stitch, collage and image or drawing. To be clear, you can take part in the workshop without taking part in the research. We will invite you to add your story afterwards, if you would like to.

Your story will respond to your experience of the immobilities of gender-based violence (GBV) during the time of the Covid-19 pandemic. Your experience of GBV in the pandemic might be imagined – for example, remembering previous experiences or experienced during, between or after the lockdowns.

GBV for us means acts of physical, emotional and sexual violence, including rape, stalking and harassment experienced because of your gender. And we’re interested in how people experience it across different spaces – this could be in the home, out in the street, on public transport, online, at work, or on college campuses. These experiences could also be related to the intersections of gender with race, ethnicity, sexuality, disability, age etc.
