Trauma Awareness Production & Publishing  is developing a narrative-based project; A Life Journey – Impact of War on Women, in partnership with Refugee Women of Bristol and Bushara (Somalian Women’s collective) and Syrian Women (VPR) Bute LGA, Scotland.


Women documenting women enables them to be authors of their shared experience. Combining spoken word, artistic expression and short films, our aim is to build a greater understanding and awareness of unseen trauma.

Our launch showcase in June 2016 at the Watershed, Bristol was described as ‘an inspiration’ and ‘Powerful beyond measure’

Rissa is now working on building partnerships in the UK and internationally, with the aim of producing art forms in response to the narratives leading to a touring exhibition.
