Presenting my project in UCD at Motherhood and creative practice: Maternal structures in creative work
An international and interdisciplinary conference that addresses ongoing debates about hospitality, solidarity and encounter as concepts in creative practice, and how they relate to contemporary issues of mothering. That is my research image in the background.
This conference is supported by the Center for Media and Culture Research and the School of Arts and Creative Industries at London South Bank University.
