Exhibition

Exhibition

The traveling exhibition gives visibility to the historical and cultural knowledge about giving birth and will raise awareness on the most current developments in this field. These will be seriously and critically questioned (eg cesarean section on demand, IVF, designer babies, etc.), for, particularly in the area of ​​pregnancy and birth, traditional (midwifery) knowledge is just as valuable as today's medicine. A healthy birth culture ideally combines both aspects and the exhibition will offer a holistic approach to childbirth and maternity. Historical exhibits are to be combined with contemporary narratives. Critical developments will be discussed, and artists will be invited to broaden the subject by means of artistic statements.

Toolkit for secondary schools: The purpose of this toolkit is to provide thematic and methodological guidelines for teachers to approach these themes in secondary schools. It is conceived mainly - but not exclusively- as a tool to be used in relationship with the traveling exhibition: in fact, it is a versatile tool that could be used in the future beyond the Birth Cultures project, by schools in other countries.
