The Project

“I look forward to this every week, thank you!”

I told her it was a bit of a domestic, whatever, and she said I had a terrible ordeal and I went to a place, I know it’s difficult, but just do it, nobody knows you, just chap the door and ask for Emily, tell her I sent you.” 

The Daisy Project offers a lifeline for many women across the southside of Glasgow who have experienced domestic abuse.  Beyond advocacy support for court, it offers longer-term therapeutic and rehabilitative support in adaptive and responsive ways, to meet women’s needs.

The women at Daisy Project are learning how to create their own stained-glass panel, through a bespoke 15-week programme of art tuition.  During the 15-week (recurring) course, they will be introduced to the craft of stained-glass art.  In addition to the hands-on experience of making their own piece, they will visit WASPS studios, to see the whole process through to leading and firing.  The finished works of art will belong to the women who made them, but will be exhibited as part of GlassWalls, in the final installation.

The exhibition will launch in November 2019, to coincide with 16 Days of Action.

25/11/19 – 25/11/19: The exhibition will be on display in the Scottish Parliament, thanks to the support of Christina McKelvie, Minister for Equalities and Older People, Rona Mackay MSP and the members of the Cross-Party Group on Men’s Violence Against Women

27th November: There will be a Members’ debate within the Scottish Parliament that will raise awareness of violence against women and invite MSPs to view the exhibition.

02/12/19 – 06/12/19 – The exhibition will be in Glasgow City Chambers, open to the public 9am-5pm, thanks to sponsorship from Glasgow City Council and the Glasgow Violence Against Women Partnership.

09/12/19 – 13/12/19 – We are taking the exhibition to Crown Office, Edinburgh where it will be hosted by our most senior prosecutors.
