We are an art collective focused on helping women and mothers develop their art practice via residency opportunities and peer support in the North of England.

We recognise the importance of protecting women’s art careers, so we devise strategies to reclaim the artworld for them by asking:

How can art organisations support identifying women and mothers to further develop their art careers?

What kind of space would be suitable for women to work alongside their children?

How can peer support provide resources and opportunities for identifying women and mothers with children?
