COMMUNITY SUPPORT & INVOLVEMENT

I will be looking for community support and involvement in two ways.
 
1. I will be asking for some practical donations of old jumpers during this project as some of the ideas I have are based around the idea of inherited ideas/stories/beliefs that we collect from both family and wider society. I’d like to represent this using jumpers and the threads they’re knitted from.

2. I believe there are universal similarities to the experiences of mothers, however I am also aware that there is a hugely diverse range of both experiences and interpretations and I would love to find away to create art that had a collective element drawing on collective experience and voices.
 
Through this project I hope womxn will share their experiences of their own motherhood both to share with each other and to allow me to draw on collective ideas which I can reflect in the art I produce.
 
I believe that by coming together and sharing our experiences and sharing in the creation of art which represents something which we feel represents a part of our own experience we can see the rich tapestry of views and experiences that can all be valid and sit alongside one another as well as the collective experience of motherhood which can help us feel less alone with our own experience.
 
I wish for this project to be exploratative and develop to be informed by a collective accumulation of experiences and ideas. I truly hope it evolves beyond the ideas I have for it in this moment, at it’s inception.
 
Will you join me?
