This project is part of the Holding Time
project, an Arts Council Funded initiative using arts interventions for women and children as a driver of health, wellbeing and resilience.
Holding Time is both a celebration of breastfeeding and an exploration of the challenges mothers experience in establishing and maintaining breastfeeding. These issues may be physical, mental, environmental or cultural barriers. Working collaboratively with local mothers, we aim to celebrate the diversity of breastfeeding whilst overturning stereotypes, challenging assumptions and encouraging greater understanding and awareness in the whole community about the value of breastfeeding and its benefits.
