Asha is an Open Secret visual art group, who meet to explore their creativity and to lend mutual support and friendship. Visual Artist Sharon Quigley has worked with this group since 2010 to create and develop collaborative artworks and self-directed projects since 2010. Asha recently exhibited their delicately hand cut stencils with Gallery on the Corner in Edinburgh.
Open Secret is a Scotland-wide charity, established in 1994, originally to work with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. This remit has now been expanded to include working with survivors of all types of abuse.
Open Secret has offices in Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire and offers services throughout Scotland.
Open Secret offers free, confidential services to survivors of abuse and support for partners, relatives and friends who have been affected. Their services provide a safe space for individuals to explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviours and the impact that abuse has had on their lives.
