Coventry City of Culture
January – July 2021
Breastfeeding mothers are sought for a video interviews. Mothers will be asked for their views on breastfeeding, whether positive or negative. These interviews, conducted by the artist will be edited and released on social media as 5 minute VLOGS the Coventry events. These interviews intended to raise awareness of the diversity and range of mothers breastfeeding in Coventry and will be a live exhibition throughout the project. The resulting interviews will be shown at on Youtube as part of The Holding Time Project during Coventry City 2021. To view existing VLOGS from the project visit www.youtube.com/c/holdingtime.
We are particularly interested in images that reflect the ethnic diversity of the city, the breastfeeding choices made by everyone, from teen mothers, to mothers of multiple children, tandem feeding mothers and mothers expressing breastmilk. Whatever your breastfeeding decision, please get involved.
Update: The interview sessions are now full, but there are still a few spaces on the Storytelling Workshops, starting Monday, March 8th. There will also be a social media campaign celebrating the unsung heroes of breastfeeding in Coventry and exhibitions later in the year.
