Procreate Project is a pioneering arts organisation supporting the development of contemporary artists who are also mothers working across art-forms. Through art we want to unpack and put light on stereotypes and assumptions for which women cannot pursue their creative goals when raising small children. Today Procreate Project offers online and offline platforms and opportunities for the display, screen and staging of works and creates the prime conditions for the production of works that would not otherwise be created.
Productions include Mother Art Prize  launched with the contribution of Art Academy, and supported by Create London; Oxytocin 1st edition organised @ RCA with support from LADA; Left Overs , exhibition @ the 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning; Foetus, new media performance presented @ RichMix and Leyden Gallery [2015/2017]; Zines archive of 130 artists, displayed at Goldsmiths University and South bank University, Lace Gallery Nottingham, Manhattan College, NYC [2015/16.17].
