The Wolverhampton University students took park in the Wolves Women's Day 2020 exhibition, which celebrated the work of female artists from around Wolverhampton and the surrounding areas.

The exhibition, organised by homeless women charity Lotus Sanctuary, promoted individuals, groups and other areas which contributed to the creative arts and independent music scene around Wolverhampton and the Midlands.

Jessica Tonks, Aabidah Shah and Rachael Ward all contributed works to the exhibition at the Light House Cinema, which marked International Women's Day in March.

Rachael’s work is a personal journey and subject of her life of how the relationship with hair was never fully maintained called ‘Intangible Knots’

Jessica focused on a piece of self portrait photography depicting how women feel they must look a certain way or do certain things instead of just being themselves.

Aabidah exhibited three projects including photographs of people of all different races, ethnicities, religions, genders, sexualities and backgrounds to celebrate People Are Beautiful.

The three women all studied Photography at Wolverhampton University, which is holding a virtual open day for prospective students.
