Join our Family Make Date in New York!

Join us 1-3pm on Sunday! British mother-daughter team Pippa and Penny Best of global mums’ community Story of Mum join the Museum of Motherhood’s Family Day to host a pop-up Family Make Date as part of their touring exhibition and events programme: Story of Mum: Mums Making an Exhibition of Ourselves. 

Story of Mum Family Make Date at the Museum of Motherhood in NYC
Sunday December 8th from 1pm to 3pm.

The Family Make Date offers a rare chance to take some creative time out to explore your identity while your children play and get creative by your side. 

Add words to a giant communal mothers’ poem, hear other mothers’ stories, make your own Mama Mash-Up collage, have your “I’m a mom and a…” photo taken, and visit the Story of Mum exhibition with your family.

Story of Mum: Mums Making an Exhibition of Ourselves draws on participatory creative activities to investigate identity:

25 short films from a diverse group of mothers describe the everyday joys and heart-breaking challenges of motherhood, each film connecting the next to a greater mothering narrative.

At each event, a wall of Mama Mash-Up collages are created by mothers to capture different aspects of our identities, inspired by the work of artist-mother Suzi Banks Baum.

Mothers also complete the sentence “I’m a mum and a…” for photographed portraits, including many collected by M.O.M. this year. Multi-taskers and dreamers, entrepreneurs and cleaners, taxi drivers and secret singers. What else are you?

Story of Mum is a community of creative mamas celebrating the ups and downs of motherhood and sharing their stories at Let’s play together at our Family Make Date.

If you know any mothers in New York, please let them know we're coming and we'd love to see them there!
