ABOUT IMOW: The International Museum of Women (IMOW) is an innovative global online museum that uses technology to showcase art, ideas and stories that celebrate, inspire and advance the lives of women around the world.
Artists, filmmakers, photographers, musicians, writers-IMOW wants to showcase your work in the new online exhibition Your Voices: On Motherhood. Contributions can come in any medium that is currently supported on IMOW.org (see below for details) and work must address a topic related to motherhood.
IMOW wants to showcase the experiences, ideas, joys and challenges of a new global generation on this important issue. What are your fears and hopes as you think about whether to become a mother? How is being a 'good' mother defined in your country or culture? How is mothering now different to your mother or grandmother's generation?
Potential topics may include but are not limited to:
Motherhood and Identity
Pregnancy and Childbirth - including maternal health
Motherhood Myths and Realities
Explore these questions and topics, or come up with your own. We encourage you to submit original art, creative writing, personal stories, journalism, music, audio, video, photography or animation for consideration, and take part in this extraordinary conversation!
