We are a grassroots collective of London based female artists passionate about inspiring and empowering each other and our communities. We create a space for artists to exhibit, sell their artwork and create a healthy creative network.
We are storytellers and facilitators who bring art out of the galleries and into the streets. Enlivening and activating unloved, urban spaces with colour and soul. Through creative expression we create opportunities for meaningful human connection, joy and positivity.
Street art has had a profound and transformational impact on many of us, increasing our confidence, helping us build strong networks and new career pathways. We want to pay this forward.
This collective is dedicated to empowering HER-story by providing a platform for graffiti jams, exhibitions, workshops and events that give back to female artists,
local communities and charities.

Raquel natalicchio (inactive founder)
Raquel Natalicchio is an internationally published photographer, teaching artist and public speaker.
“ As a storyteller I believe in the power of image and story as having the ability to not only inspire but also expand our awareness. Images allow us to dive into all the layers of our world and gain a greater understanding of our environment and each other. Images serve as tools to educate, motivate and liberate. They also are a place where worlds can be created and the future imagined.”
