The Overnight Bag

The Overnight BagDecorated with varieties of the pill, condoms, pessaries and the morning after pill.

This handbag was made for the exhibition ‘Sexwise’, a collaboration between Pharmacopoeia, Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery and the Health Authority in Nottingham, which focused on teenage pregnancy.

“An important part of the project involved the teenagers themselves making a video about the reality of teenage pregnancy. They were obviously enthusiastic, they learnt a lot through participating in that project and their experience has undoubtedly influenced them. Sexwise also worked brilliantly with the schools. We use the project as a model of good practice for health promotion in schools.”
