We are excited to finally announce that The Mother House - Artists studios with Integrated Childcare are OPEN at Catford Mews in Lewisham!
It took us five years, many fights, mistakes, community strength, support, and love, but we made it until here. Last week the refurbishment works started on the first floor of Catford Mews, which will house the first permanent Mother House Studios space in London. Thanks to our partners Really Local Group and Lewisham Council and all our supporters.
Now more than ever, under the current crisis and urgent need for women, mothers, and primary carers to re-occupy spaces in the community, we want to offer a radical model that re-imagines the way we re-organise space and opportunities, the private and the public.
We are trying to flexibly adapt to the constantly changing and uncertain times by offering different possibilities and level of commitment, still making sure we stay sustainable to guarantee longevity to the model.
We will be offering the following memberships:
Shared care. 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 childcare is not available during the weekend). Commitment of a minimum of 3 months is required with a month notice if leaving.
Full-time care. You can hire a desk for 7 days a week with 5 days of childcare. A commitment of a minimum of 3 months is required with a month notice if leaving.
Day to daycare. You can book a daily drop-in up to 24h before. Please note, we will need to confirm availability before attending.
