Here here !Before becoming an MP I spent 26 years in work to end violence against women—locally, nationally, and internationally. The last ten years I worked with perpetrators of domestic violence.

I am proud to have founded the All Party Parliamentary Group on Perpetrators of Domestic Abuse, which has helped to inform the draft Domestic Abuse Bill.

If re-elected, the struggle to end violence against women will remain a high priority for me, as it has been for the last four years.

We still live in a deeply unequal society. I am still only the 408th woman ever to have been sworn in as an MP in UK Parliament. Although there are still few women (and fewer women of colour) in politics, we are harder to ignore when we are there.

Helen Musker ‘Today is the 1st December 2019, my eldest sons birthday.
He was delivered into the world by emergency caesarian section, at the time of both of my pregnancies I was working as a midwife in the
NHS, I often wonder if we had been in a different country with no NHS the outcome would have been very different.
Today is also World AIDS Day, and I now work in sexual health. In 1985 when I started my nurse training and working for the NHS the messages to the public surrounding AIDS were of death and tomb stones, today HIV is treatable and has become a chronic illness rather than the death sentence it was, use of drugs now mean that the spread of HIV can be prevented.
So although today finds the NHS straining under pressure from people's expectations and demands, and for me as a nurse is maybe not as fun and respectful place to work as it was in the 1980's, I am still proud and glad to be a nurse and to have played a part in the NHS.’

A proud moment. This new NHS panel was launched today Tuesday 26th November 2019. Details - photographs and quote will be revealed after the election on the 12th December. There is no razzmatazz only reflection, breath and hopefully the hope that this new NHS panel will be filled with stories and fingerprints from as many people that have worked and still work in the NHS as possible. A celebration of this incredible service that we need to take care of. First of all I will travel to Barrow- in- Furness to collect a fingerprint from a very dear friend of mine...Joan Hartley a retired nurse who trained in the early 60’s. Thereafter many more.
The National Health Service (NHS) is the system of public healthcare providers in the United Kingdom. It includes NHS England, NHS Scotland, NHS Wales, and the affiliated Health and Social Care (HSC) in Northern Ireland. They were established together in 1948 as one of the major social reforms following the Second World War. The founding principles were that services should be comprehensive, universal and free at the point of delivery.Each service provides a comprehensive range of health services, free at the point of use for people ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom, apart from dental treatment and optical care. The colours on the panel will be Blue & Grey.

A wonderful improvisation comedic company -to celebrate our wonderful instinctive reaction to laugh and have fun. The professional company was formed over 20 yrs ago and hasn’t ever sought funding. This has encouraged an independent approach - honing their craft...which is purely to entertain ! No compromise 🙂

‘Speaking as someone from the arts community who works very much “in the moment” with my comedy improvisation company “Instant Wit”, I love the way that Elaine has captured the identity of so many people who she met only fleetingly – truly spontaneous stuff! – but who are now part of a huge, impressive piece of art. So it’s both “in the moment” and long lasting – and now I’m proud to be a part of it too.’

Over the last four yrs whilst walking across cities with SPOTtimespotTIME, the increasing numbers of people who sadly have no home became alarmingly evident. I don’t know exact figures and I havent walked across the same city twice ...however, the people who are homeless has become distressingly high. This is an action! One of hope, empathy and compassion, ..the human qualities that we need to nurture in each other. ... See MoreSee Less

Another late evening whilst another visitor came to lay her fingerprint on ‘ Art - A Unifying Language’ Panel....quote to follow from people soon - and then pictures.We wondered at the beauty of three gorgeous fingerprints and saw worlds within worlds...a flower print and writing.Three generations sitting together in time alongside each other - ancestry celebrated. When I made Turning ‘ages in 2012 - it celebrated memories, time and the relationship we had with words and wonder. Our ‘ love affair’ with the book. SPOTtimespotTIME will be completed next August 2020- A five year social document. A large fingerprint of society which is levelling - full of honour- inclusive and accessible. I have pictures - thousands of them documenting a process - a time together. Not something past, forward but always present. Flowing, instinctive and free. Thank you for a wonderful and inspiring evening Holly. More next week as lots of fingerprints coming this way.🧡🦋 ... See MoreSee Less

What a wonderful evening. Tonight a birth and death ; Two of the
many faces of theatre life....Jekyll and Hyde ! The early part of the evening I was privileged enough to be a witness audience at ‘The Actors Playground’ as a theatre company -births new ideas. Later in the evening - Red Rope Theatre Company add their fingerprints to the panel ‘ART - A Unifying Language’ SPOTtimespotTIME #fingerprintofunity on the eve of their last performance of the SOLD OUT production of Jekyll and Hyde at Arnos Vale Cemetery. I arrive as they undo their magic and clear away their theatre set.

‘Unity is not something we need to create, it is something we need to recognise. So many things unify us, struggle, art, love - and they do so whether we want them to or not’ Matt Grinter - Red Rope Theatre Company.

Another Panel completed. Cardiff Walkabout 19th April 2019 and The National Assembly for Wales 5th November 2019. The panel is one of 20 panels which will represent Wales on the SPOTtimespotTIME #fingerprintofunity. The emerging nationwide artwork and social document asks people to think about how they feel when they are asked for their fingerprint. In the increasingly digital arena our perception of ourselves and our understanding regarding our own identity is changing rapidly. The 20 panels have been gathered over a 5 yr period and has captured unique time in history.

Conversations regarding austerity, identity, the environment and conservation concerns, population and fast changing dna developments are some of the conversations that have occurred on the city walkabouts.

The last panel will be completed in August 2020 and all 20 panels will be placed in individual clear resin ; Preserved in time. #spottimespottime#fingerprintofunity #elainerobinsonartist #elainerobinsonart #art #socialdocument #fingerprintofunity #wales #thenationalassemblyforwales #identity #DNA #population #inclusive #dignity #instinct #cellularcommunication #conservation #life #levelling #emegingnationwideartwork #cardiff #wales
