Following February’s focus on Dreams for 2018, we look at Support. What kind of support will help you be a better mum? a better maker? What might help create more groundedness? Or can we dance with the groundlessness? How can we support each other to work within the uncertainties? Come to explore these questions, or ask your own, and to chat to other mums who are making and mothering.
WHAT WE DO
Mothers Who Make is a national movement, and is open to all mothers (or soon to be mothers) who work in the creative arts. Together we investigate the links between creative practice and mothering — what do the roles of making and mothering have in common? How can the two practices be compatible, or even enrich each other? We meet to explore these questions through guided discussion and brief creative-response exercises.
Mothers and their babies and young children are welcome to attend. The space is ours to explore, make connections, and get time to understand our making and mothering better. Mothers Who make exists to support the work of any creative mother (photographers, painters, filmmakers, artists, singers, actors, dancers, producers etc.). Any creative mum at any stage of her career is very welcome. We have a box of stimulating objects for the young ones to make use of during the session. The group is non-hierarchical, and sessions are led by an experienced facilitator/member.
THERE IS NO NEED TO BOOK — Just Turn UP!
If you know in advance that you plan to attend, the Bristol Old Vic box office appreciates knowing this — it’s an easy way to ‘pay back’ for their generosity in providing us with the space — book your place at this link: https://bristololdvic.org.uk/whats-on/mothers-who-make
Don’t worry if something happens last minute and you can’t make it. 😉 Go with the flow!
