Cardboard Citizens Associate Artist, Terry O'Leary has been working with ESOL (English for Speaker of Other Languages) learners at the Bromley by Bow Centre as part of an eight day project with a group of women.

The group have devised a forum piece that addresses some of the barriers they face to achieving their goals. The work is based on stories the ladies have shared with the group and will culminate in a performance at the end of the workshops. For many this would be the first time they have performed in any language!
