The I AM MORE THAN is a project created by the women at SIG EQUINOX Brighton Women’s Service (BWS). Over the years this exhibition has included a wide range of media, such as photography, masks, poetry, and tapestry. This year, we created animated stories depicting health inequality for women experiencing homelessness. Please note that all opinions shared in these videos are unique to the individuals telling their stories.
