Part of our Myth and Reality Season

For parents and carers with babies under 12 months or toddlers, but older siblings welcome

With author Hettie Judah

Headley Lecture Theatre

Booking is required

What are the challenges parents face in the artistic world?

Come and join us at the third in our series of baby and toddler-friendly lectures designed to uncover more about the myths and reality present in our collections. Feed your inquisitive minds while feeling comfortable bringing tiny tots.

At this lecture, author Hettie Judah explores the challenges parents face in the art world and looks at the balance between work and family life for artists with families.

Based on her book of the same name 'How Not to Exclude Artists Mothers (and other parents)', prepare to be both inspired and challenged.
