The first and only Artists studio model
with Integrated Childcare
The Mother House Studios (MHS) is part of Procreate Project. The MHS is a pioneering model, a creative solution to a proven lack of viable provision that sufficiently supports professional artists during pregnancy and motherhood/parenthood.
The model is based on integration, offering a working space, a dedicated and open-plan laboratory for artists to work, and an interconnected, inspiring space, dedicated to children who have the freedom to move between the two rooms.
The responsibility is shared between childcare facilitators and mothers/parents, all jointly responsible for hands-on care work. The working space is open and a communal kitchen allows time for aggregation and space to find group strategies and inspiration to further maintain a sustainable integration of life and work practices.
