Project Space

Story of Mum

3 May – 2 June 2013


Story of Mum, created by Pippa and Penny Best, is a (primarily online) project that shares words, photos, film and audio from mums, nans and great-grandmothers worldwide, building an ever-growing portrait of motherhood.


Throughout May the Project Space plays host to the Story of Mum exhibition, an interactive series of events to celebrate mothers and their stories: ‘popping up’ at Milton Keynes, Penzance, London… and New York. The exhibition explores motherhood, identity and the stories we tell about ourselves through participatory artwork created together, face to face and online.


The exhibition will be accompanied by a programme of special events and creative sessions designed especially with ‘mums’ in mind. Drop in, create and upload straight into the exhibition – A chance to get MK mums on the map!


The Project Space will be open to the public every Saturday between 12noon and 3pm.
