Everyone and anyone is welcome at the following events in the Parlour calendar. Come along and bring a friend! Babies welcome, always :-)
This Making Space residency at Fabrica Gallery is an opportunity to test Holding Time as a multi-screen installation featuring animation, stills and video. Using material created over the past three years of breastfeeding mothers, this four day installation will test a working method of showing stop motion portraits alongside an abstract 'time map' based on Cosmateque designs.
The portraits are designed to represent a broad range of mothers including mothers of a variety of ages, nationalities, mothers with young babies up to small children. Most of the mothers are separately interviewed for The Parlour website podcasts in collaboration with sociologist, Lucila Newell.

We will be hosting a two week breastfeeding sit in beginning Thursday 22nd and running to Sunday 4th March to accompany the exhibition of Holding Time at ONCA GAllery, Brighton. The gallery will be open from 10am - 5pm so come along, have a nice sit down and meet some likeminded mothers!
ONCA Gallery will be showing Holding Time for two weeks this spring, with an installation of photographic still portraits, a single screen animation and video recorded interviews with participating mothers. In conjunction with The Parlour, a social enterprise founded by artist Lisa Creagh and sociologist Lucila Newell, the exhibition will feature a daily 'breastfeeding hub' where mothers can join in the conversation by breastfeeding together in the gallery. The exhibition will also feature talks and workshops around the theme of motherhood and time, focusing on the issues facing mothers who breastfeed.
As a writer and sociologist, Lucila Newell has researched policy change on the issues around breastfeeding and public space. Together with Lisa Creagh, she founded The Parlour, an online exchange of ideas featuring interviews with breastfeeding mothers, images and ideas around overcoming the cultural barriers to breastfeeding. The talk will take place in the gallery.
