There are a number of fantastic events each year, raising awareness and vital funds for Solace Women’s Aid. Here are some of the upcoming events which you can support to help us provide life-changing services to more women and children affected by abuse.
Blue Skies Exhibition
18th & 19th January 2017
We’re pleased to announce that Blue Skies, a photography exhibition by women who have experienced violence, will be coming to the Camden Image Gallery in January. Artists from participatory arts charity Spare Tyre have collaborated with women from Solace Women’s Aid to explore themes of hope, transformation and aspirations through visual art and digital photography.
#ItsNotOk Awareness Week
6th – 12th February 2017
We’ll be supporting this year’s Sexual Violence & Sexual Abuse Awareness Week, which was established to give an opportunity for the general public, statutory and third sector organisations to participate in a discussion about sexual abuse and sexual violence. During the week we’ll be raising awareness about sexual abuse and sexual violence.
Rock Against Violence

Stand Up 4 Women
Over the course of two weeks, there were five fabulous comedy nights which featured over 50 women to raise money for Solace Women’s Aid. A huge thanks to the all the women who took part and supported this event.
Folk Against Violence
Folk Against Violence, the new night from the team behind Rock Against Violence, was a fantastic night. The phenomenal acts and a stunning venue transported the audience from the urban chaos of Kings Cross to a wonderful wilderness of folk music. The generosity of everyone involved meant over £2750 was raised to support more women and children affected by abuse in London.
