Mothers who Make is a grassroots, international network, dedicated to supporting mothers that hold the dual roles of mother and maker. There are peer support meetings across the UK and in France and Australia.
The hub meetings take place once a month welcoming:
Every kind of mother who considers herself a maker – professional and / or passionate – in any discipline and at any stage on their creative paths – writers, painters, performers, film makers, dancers, producers, musicians, crafters, cooks…
Children of any age are encouraged to attend too and are integrated into the meeting, for the dual roles of mother and artist are recognised and given equal value within all MWM events.
The Dartmoor hub began in February 2020 as part of a pilot project developing support and network for mother makers in Devon. Our dream is that this hub will develop with you and provide a supportive, creative space in a number of ways; to connect, share, network and be valued and visible as a mother and maker.
Sessions are often bespoke, and have been held out and about at different locations, however we often host sessions at the MED Theatre Studio, 11a New Street, Moretonhampstead, TQ13 8PE.
Park in a car park in Moretonhampstead then walk to the centre where you find a wide alleyway the right of the Co-Op. Follow this around to the right where you’ll find our studio.
For further information or to join the meeting contact Abby at MED Theatre firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you there!
