Since 2012, The Gravida Project has been exploring maternity, mental health and creativity through multimedia artwork and performances. Maternal mental health is a huge issue, with one in four new mothers encountering depression and anxiety.

The base of this project is the belief that creativity, and the body in movement have a capacity for self-healing, generating awareness and wellbeing that is necessary for supporting future generations. 

In 2019 and 2020 we will be creating and touring a multimedia dance experience to venues across Wales. We are very excited to also be delivering community workshops, Q&As, online discussions and other artistic events. Through this activity we will enable the public to truly become involved with the artistic-therapeutic aspect of the project. We also aim to stimulate public debate around Wales of the perception and treatment of pregnancy.  

Gravida has already begun some vital conversations, and started to make waves in national media. We’re now looking for an External Evaluator to work with us as we move into this next phase, to help us assess the impact of our work on audiences, communities and public discourse.
