A symposium and programme of performances about women, carers, mother art, maternal health and wellbeing.
Under the umbrella of the Procreate Project, Oxytocin – birthing the world, is an international research and community event focused on mothers and carers. The panels will analyse current critical practices pushing for new strategies aimed at increasing the visibility and representation of women and mothers in society.
Oxytocin will be housing a bibliotheque of titles from LADA's Study Room, which will be available for consultation throughout the day.
The symposium will highlight new ideas whereby infrastructures and creative programs can support and facilitate healthy families thus challenging attitudes towards motherhood, female sexuality, birth, depression and human rights.
Oxytocin will encourage conversation and exchange between medical, academic and art sectors with the aim to facilitate collaborations between them and increase awareness on women's rights, mental, emotional and physical needs during pregnancy, labour and postnatal adaptation.
The event opens a community discussion aimed at spotlighting the connection between much-needed support for mothers and new approaches that are designed to encourage mothers’ and childrens’ optimum health, professional and artistic development, ongoing education, and continuing connection.
The event will consist of panel discussions lead by three sectors (Artists & Academy, Midwifery, Mental Health and human rights) fused with a day programme of performances, installations and live art.
