The Mother House - Artists studios with Integrated Childcare are
at Catford Mews in Lewisham!
Now more than ever, under the current crisis and urgent need for womxn, mothers, and primary carers to re-occupy spaces in the community, we want to offer a radical model that re-imagines the way we organise space and opportunities, the private and the public.
The Catford Studios are open 7 days a week, at the moment with Wednesday-Thursday-Fridays with integrated childcare support.
Priority will be given to parents, however, we are welcoming non-parents, womxn, and queer artists to our community.
Part-time and full-time memberships are available.
We are trying to flexibly adapt to the constantly changing and uncertain times by offering different possibilities and levels of commitment, still making sure we stay sustainable to guarantee longevity to the model.
We will be offering the following memberships:
Shared desk with and without childcare. You can hire the desk with an artist friend/colleague and divide the week as you wish. (Please note arrangements need to be communicated to our team so we can organise childcare accordingly). Or we can match you with an artist and divide the hire in 2 to 3 week-days each + free access during the weekend for both. (Note integrated childcare is not available during the weekend). A commitment of a minimum of 3 months is required with a month's notice if leaving.
Full-time desk with or without childcare. You can hire a desk for 7 days a week with currently 3 days of integrated childcare. A commitment of a minimum of 3 months is required with a month notice if leaving.
Drop-ins. You can book a daily drop-in up to 24h before. Please note, we will need to confirm availability before attending.
