The Birth Cultures project is looking for stories about childbirth and pregnancy for the travelling exhibition that will take place in the Frauenmuseum Hittisau (Austria), Frauenmuseum Merano (Italy), Gender Museum (Kharkiv, Ukraine), and La Bonne (Barcelona, Spain).
We invite Women's Museums and individuals from all countries to share their stories, experiences, and journey related to their birth. We find birth rituals and traditions particularly interesting - but also specific problems, ideological approaches, or stories of best practices, or even interesting biographies.
It would be great if we could integrate your story into our interactive registers.
We would be glad if you contribute in the following format:
Text: max. 1200 characters
Text: max. 1800 characters
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the email subject heading “Submission for Birth stories”.
We are looking forward to seeing your exciting stories!
The call will be open until January 2022
THE INTERACTIVE REGISTER
We have developed a format in which many exciting stories can be collected without taking up too much space in the exhibitions: the interactive register. It is a hanging file in the form of a tapestry. This picture below will give you an impression of how your story will look like in our exhibitions:
