At the heart of Mothering the Mother is the recognition that mothers need nourishment, support and care to be resourced to best nourish, support and care for their own children. The well known African proverb: ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ highlights that which is so often missing for women today – support from elders, extended family and community. Mothering the Mother will explore and celebrate different ways that people are creating support for mothers and their communities. This project grew out of earlier arts project Mother in the Mother.
