Making Mothers is a research project which aims to test an approach to the provision of antenatal care. Using a collective making activity alongside midwifery support we hope to prove the value of creative engagement as part of midwifery care, suggest new models for antenatal intervention and offer a group of pregnant women an experience at a significant moment in their lives.
We are looking to recruit an experienced artist to deliver workshops to women in South Birmingham starting in March 2019. We are particularly interested in makers working with textiles who can devise and deliver a making activity which links expectant mothers to their unborn child.
Deadline for expressions of interest from artists is 5pm, Tuesday 5th February 2018.
