A partnership between Arc’s Just for Mums group and Creative Industries Trafford led to this animated short film exploring women’s experience of becoming a mum. A group of artists exploring a new medium resulted in the production of a short film that will hopefully raise awareness of some of the issues and challenges of peri / postnatal depression.

A film by John Grey about Sarah Greaves’ art installation in 2018 ‘The Other in Mother‘,
commissioned by Arc, around perinatal mental health issues and motherhood.

The Curiosity Project reframed what we do at Arc and encouraged us to reflect on
what we do and why we do it. The project was a collaboration between Dr. Anke Bernau
from the University of Manchester and Arc. Some of our wellbeing programme
participants and volunteers met up over a period of 10 weeks to explore the concept
of curiosity and how they could interpret their thoughts and ideas through art.

funding. Film by John Grey.

Young women from Manchester Bangladeshi Women’s Organisation (MBWO)
