The Empowerment Project 2024

June 26 @ 8:00 am - July 14 @ 5:00 pm

£10.00
Four years ago, Danielle created The Empowerment project during lockdown, which saw 70 pairs of boobs printed and collated onto a beautiful art print! The aim of the project was to show the amazing network of breastfeeding mums in the Wakefield area. Danielle’s hope was that it would play it’s part in empowering expectant mums and new mums to breastfeed for as long as THEY choose, knowing that they will have all the support they need.
 
We are ready to do it all again!!
 
What we ask of you is that you paint and print your boobs and send an image to us. Danielle will then collate all the images together to create a print which then can be sold to raise money for Families and Babies (and put on some fabulous merchandise too!)
 
1. Register to take part – you will receive a completed A3 art print as part of your £10 entry fee, available to collect from our celebration event on Saturday 3rd August.
 
2. Apply paint (any colour/s) to your boobs using a sponge or paintbrush and print boobs onto A3 paper (or two A4 sheets attached together) leaning forward over a table or desk. If you are in need of paint or paper, call in to collect from the FAB base or ARTventurers in Normanton.
 
3. Either:
a) Take a clear photo of your print in good lighting (no shadows) or use a scanning function on your phone and send the file/s to danielle@artventurers.co.uk by 14th July
b) Drop your print into the FAB base in The Ridings or ARTspace (ARTventurers Wakefield East, 6 High Street, Normanton).
 
Please invite any fellow past or present breastfeeding mums to take part.
 
Any questions, please let us know!

We can’t wait to see the outcome ( . ) ( . )
