This innovative nationwide movement continues in Coventry this autumn.
Are you a passionate maker or artist and a mother? Do you want to develop your practice and connect with other mother makers? Would you like to meet in a welcoming, inclusive and supportive space to discuss the opportunities for growth and the challenges these dual roles present? We invite you to explore your practice within a peer support framework and consider and discuss how you balance these two vital roles.

Every kind of maker is welcome – professional and/or passionate – in any discipline and at any stage on their creative paths – writers, visual artists, performers, film makers, dancers, producers, musicians, crafters…

Every kind of mother is welcome – biological, adoptive, step, surrogate, foster, bereaved, grand, great grand, to be ….

Mothers Who Make is not a child centred play session or an adult only event but a third way – an adult centred group which welcomes children. Children of any age are encouraged to attend and are integrated into the meeting, for the dual roles of mother and artist are recognised and given equal value within all MWM events. Toys are provided.

Mothers Who Make are delighted to be partnering with Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art for our October meeting who will support them in hosting a workshop with award-winning, internationally acclaimed Scottish artist, and mother Jacqueline Donachie who features in the Biennial festival programme.

Find out about Jacqueline’s socially engaged practice here: http://jacquelinedonachie.co.uk/
