Exploring the silence around postnatal mental illness through stories.
Immerse yourself in an installation that illuminates a historically overlooked area of women’s health. Brought together by Alison Neighbour’s comforting design, the piece contains three audio plays written by Courtney Conrad, Bryony Kimmings and Sara Shaarawi that break the pervasive culture of silence around maternal mental health.
The project draws on groundbreaking research led by Professor Hilary Marland, with Dr Kelly Couzens and Dr Fabiola Creed, and is informed by a variety of historical sources, including first hand testimonies from and by women in twentieth-century Britain. The Last Taboo of Motherhood? probes vital questions about women’s experiences
The Last Taboo of Motherhood? audio plays will also be available to stream via Fuel Digital.
