Roots and Wings is an exhibition held at The House of Blah Blah, Middlesbrough exploring the themes of girls growing up around the world. Inspired by a study which stated that Middlesbrough was the worst place for girls to grow up in the UK. How do other girls get brought up around the world, and what culturally and ethnically differences do we teach on girls for us to grow up so differently or similarly? Artists from around the world have contributed to this exhibition. Artists involved are, Bex Massey, Susanne Wawra, Barbara Ash, Zara worth, Sadie Hennessy, Victoria Rose Cookson, Mary Lou Springstead, Cath Walshaw, Barbara Bervoets, Elizabeth Black and many more!
