Tyreis talks about her lived experience of growing up in South London as a third generation young Caribbean woman, and how her practice explores community, healing and mental health through poetry and textiles. For Tyreis, art brings tangibility to otherwise unrealised thoughts, giving them a form that we can touch and feel. Textile becomes a universal language that can address the trauma experienced by black women who have historically had to repress their emotions as a survival tactic. Listen to her interview with Defne Oruc to find out more on the power of being vulnerable and why “It’s O.K. not to be O.K.”
