I was drawn to set up the hub with Adele because I want to increase creative support for women negotiating the artistic challenges of motherhood. I want to help provide a place to play and think together. I would like to foster a community that creatively articulates the often invisible and unacknowledged work of caregiving. I’ve been looking for a space to nourish me for ages so I thought I’d better help make one.”
— Jessica (MWM Coventry)

Mothers who Make is a grass roots, national initiative, dedicated to supporting mothers that hold the dual roles of mother and artist.

Every kind of maker is welcome - professional and/or passionate –in any discipline and at any stage on their creative paths - writers, painters, performers, film makers, dancers, producers, musicians, crafters…

Children of any age are encouraged to attend too and are integrated into the meeting, for the dual roles of mother and artist arerecognised and given equal valuewithin all MWM events.

We want our MWM hub to develop with you and provide a supportive, creative space in a number of ways; to connect, share, network and participate. We want it to be grown with and by you.   

Adele and Jess launched MWM Coventry in May 2019 supported by Zoe Gardner (MWM North London)
