A socially committed organisation, the Fruitmarket values art as an agent of disruption and change and we work hard to break down barriers so that everyone can have access to visual art and culture. As such a partnership with Hey Girls seemed a perfect fit for us, and one that we hoped would get more people thinking and talking about the important issue of period poverty and period dignity in the UK. For the past six months Hey Girls have generously provided free products in our bathrooms for people coming to see our exhibitions, visit our bookshop and café; for community groups taking part in our events and workshops; and for our team of permanent and freelance staff. Although the Fruitmarket is about to close for redevelopment, our relationship with Hey Girls is important to us and we’ll look forward to shouting even louder with them when we reopen in 2020!
